Firstly, thank you to all the passionate wildlife photographers who continue to send us their best nature pictures every month. We look at every single image. I hope that Wild Planet Photo Magazine will encourage, inspire and offer a community of like-minded photographers that believe in the same mission as you do – to create original pictures of wildlife with the utmost respect for your subject.
For Margot Raggett, a wildlife photographer who has chosen to spearhead conservation projects to help protect endangered species, that respect is paramount. In this issue, you have the chance to win a copy of the latest coveted charity fundraising book that she is set to launch, Remembering Rhinos (more on page 104). The superb Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 finalists also feature in this month’s edition, with the stories behind the images providing deeper perspective. Plus, don’t miss our essential guide to photographing Etosha National Park in Namibia, famed for its spectacular wildlife. Here’s to another picture-packed issue!
