Time to go back to the field! :)

And nothing better for starting the New Year than visiting one of the more enigmatic ecosystems in Ecuador: the Andean Eastern Foothills, land of the Andean Forest-Pitviper (Bothriopsis pulchra) and other exotic species.

Is it just me, or are hatchling crocodilians the cutest reptiles out there?
This is a Spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus), they are the most wide spread species of crocodilian from the new world. Spectacled caimans range from southern México to most of South America.

Usually a solitary bird, it was incredibly special to see a breeding pair of Shoebills! This pair brought the total count of Shoebills seen to five individuals, in just one week. Such rare birds, but Uganda has multiple sites where they are frequently recorded. Along with over 1,000 other bird species, Uganda is a birders paradise! This photo was taken on tour in Murchison Falls National Park 🇺🇬

Photo by @christianziegler. A Calumma ambreense female foraging for insects with extendable tongue. Montagne d’Ambre, Madagascar is the only place on earth where this chameleon is found, in a 30km2 patch of forest. More than 90% of forest habitat in Madagascar has been destroyed and consequently the majority of Madagascar’s endemic chameleons are highly threatened due to habitat loss.

Hello everybody, my name is Christian Ziegler and I am a photographer focusing on natural history and conservation issues in the tropics. I am a biologist who changed profession to photograph and document how tropical ecosystems and species are struggling to survive in a rapidly changing world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I work for National Geographic, GEO Magazine, and various scientific organizations. I have been very lucky to win 4 prizes in the World Press Awards (2012-2016); all stories covered threatened tropical species. This week I am taking over the World Press Photo Foundation Instagram feed, during which I’ll be sharing and talking about some of my work. I hope to amaze you with the beauty and diversity of the natural world, and to inspire people to care about conservation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope you like the images!

Borneo has many amazing frog species and among the most beautiful is the Jade Tree Frog. This is a relatively common species in lowland rainforests, though it usually lives high up in trees so can be hard to see until it comes down to breed.
