A new international initiative called The New Big 5 project is aiming to create the New Big 5 (#NewBig5) of wildlife: the Big 5 of photography, not hunting.

The huge project, which encourages people to shoot animals with a camera, not a gun, is supported by more than 100 of the world’s leading photographers, conservationists, and wildlife lovers, including Dr Jane Goodall, Steve McCurry, Joanna Lumley, Steve Winter, Tim Laman, and so many more, as well as organisations such as Save The Elephants, International Fund for Animal Welfare, and Greenpeace.

The New Big 5 project is asking people to vote for the top animals (out of 46) that they want to see on a “bucket list” for travellers, photographers, and wildlife lovers. There’s also a serious message: the world’s wildlife is in crisis and the next 10 years are critical.

The project is set to run for six months, with the results announced later in 2020. You can join others around the world to vote for the five animals that you’d like to see included in the New Big 5 of Wildlife Photography.

Feeding Time

“Movement, dynamics and moment – the pursuit of these components in photography makes me pack the camera in my backpack and go on a photohunt. The studio or production is not very interesting to me, it’s the search for natural movement that shapes my photo life. Hence the choice of the directions that are most interesting to me: photoanimalism, “sports, genre. With the help of the camera, I try to grab from life its manifestations, moments, emotions and speed.”
—Igor Shilokhvost
