"It’s an incredible collection already!"

says Wild Wonders of Europe Managing Director, Staffan Widstrand. “Our photographers have done a wonderful job. Now we are all excited about the final 10 submissions. They will bring whales and other marine life from the Azores, turtles from Turkey and river otters and dolphins from Scotland!

For two weeks now a team of three staff are checking the files from more than 45 European countries in order to make them easily available to clients and partners. You will soon see more of them in our online galleries.
