Photography – Rare Black Panther Roaming In The Jungles Of India

Shaaz Jung ‘s work primarily spans across South India and East Africa. His love for nature is reflected in how he portrays his subjects through his photography and writing in a unique style. His images of a black panther exploring Kabini Forest in Karnataka, India were recently posted on social media.

“Though I enjoy photographing my subjects in their natural environment, I have always been fascinated by depicting my work in a more artistic form. Unlike art, a photograph can be replicated or duplicated and this motivated me to create images that were true to the nature of the subject but with an artistic feel that made it unique. My aim was to evoke a sense of surrealism which symbolized a beautiful world with magical creatures, a world we may soon only dream about.“

Photography: Wildlife Crossings

Wildlife crossings are structures that allow animals to cross human-made barriers safely. They may include: underpass tunnels, viaducts, and overpasses (mainly for large or herd-type animals), fish ladders and green roofs (for butterflies and birds). Wildlife crossings are a practice in habitat conservation, allowing connections or re-connections between habitats, combating habitat fragmentation. They also assist in avoiding collisions between vehicles and animals, which in addition to killing or injuring wildlife may cause injury to humans and property damage.
