Our wild world captured by you.
Focus for Survival is a celebration of Mother Nature through photography.
Images in our collection have kindly been donated by professional and celebrity supporters, or have won a place in our exhibition by entering our annual Focus for Survival photographic competition.
In many cases, the story beyond the image is one of habitat loss, population fragmentation, persecution, conflict, pollution and declining numbers while others tell a tale of conservation success, adaption and resilience. The images are a powerful reminder of the colour, beauty and diversity of our planet and a persuasive call to action to protect the wild.

PHOTOGRAPHY SUPPORTING CONSERVATION
Photography has the power to inspire a wide audience. By sharing the story behind the image, we can raise vital awareness about threats to wildlife and wild spaces while also raising funds for frontline projects through the sale of prints and/or calendars.
Many of the images in our collection feature an at-risk wild space, or a species listed on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List – the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi and plant species. Any species with a categorisation of Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered means it faces a high risk of extinction in the wild. All the images have a conservation story to tell.
