” For over a year, 69 of the world’s best nature photographers travelled to all corners of Europe ’s 48 countries to unveil the incredibly rich and amazingly varied natural heritage of this continent. From the polar bears of arctic Svalbard to the sea turtles of the Mediterranean , from the wild bison of Poland to the snow-covered glaciers of the Caucasus – for the first time ever, the wild beauty of Europe ’s landscapes and the immense diversity of its wildlife is being shown to the world.”
Marking the International Year of Biodiversity, this book celebrates some concrete results of what is possible when humans are taking the right actions. But it also reminds us of the serious consequences of taking the wrong actions . . . or none at all. Läs mer om den nya boken på www.wild-wonders.com.

“Laponia” – a name like a fairy tale for a UNESCO World Heritage Site of 4.000 km2 along the Polar Circle. Vast stretches of wilderness, moose and arctic foxes, ptarmigans and geese, bogs and rivers – a shining example of more than 4.000 nature reserves and protected areas in Europe’s 5th largest country, Sweden.
While Sweden’s domestic and international policies serve as models of neutrality and consensus-building in Europe, the country is also a major holiday destination for millions of tourists every year from all over the continent.
Boreal forests are dense and attract a rising number of bears, wolves and lynx. Not to everybody’s liking, but yet another example of how wildlife returns to the European wilderness in great numbers.
Wild Wonders of Europe photographers will set out to visualize some of the most exciting wildlife spectacles and most charismatic species of the north: lekking black grouse and capercaillies, various owls and Red-throated divers, roosting cranes and – of course – they will travel to that mysterious wilderness in the North, to Laponia.
