Some of us may think endangered animals are already a thing of the past. This is definitely not the case, according to experts, as many creatures are still in danger of extinction to this very day.

Take it from British photographer Tim Flach who spent two years of his life taking pictures of animals that may soon be endangered. Aptly-entitled “Endangered”, his project shows us the beauty and sadness of seeing animals in their natural habitats.

The photos have since received a lot of attention online and it has even been featured by several websites, including Bored Panda. As the website tells us, Endangered is comprised of everything “from species we’re all familiar with (polar bear, snow leopard, cheetah) to exotic beasts we’d only imagine in fantasy films (saiga, Philippine Eagle, olm, salamander).”

Needless to say, Flach’s images definitely shed some “light on the unique challenges each animal faces in order to survive.” The sad reality is that many of these amazing creatures are in constant danger of hunting, poaching, and being sold in the black market.
