I’m proud to say that BBC Wildlife Magazine has chosen to feature a selection of photographs taken by myself and Remo Savisaar during the trip that we co-led for Estonian Nature Tours in 2013. You can enjoy the gallery online at their website discoverwildlife.com

If this taster of what Estonia has to offer excites you, Remo and I will be introducing guests to Estonia’s fantastic wildlife again in 2014. During this nine-day tour you will have the chance to photograph from hides, boats, vehicles, viewing towers and on foot as we seek out bears, beavers, birds and other animals in Estonia’s vast forests, bogs and wetlands. You can see the full itinerary and tour details on my website conservationphotojournalism.com

A review of my new African wild dog book Underdogs features in the February 2012 issue of BBC Wildlife magazine. The book fills the much sought after ‘Picture Book Choice’ slot with the following review:

“This is a book with heart. Photojournalist Neil Aldridge’s love of wild dogs shines through his beautiful images and passionate prose. Majoring on the species’ fight to survive – as poignantly illustrated by alpha female Stellar and her pack – this timely book highlights current conservation efforts, and offers a glimmer of hope for the future.”

This review follows a recent online gallery that can be seen on the magazine’s website discoverwildlife.com. The latest issue of BBC Wildlife is out now and features a touching image of lions by Andy Rouse on the cover. There is a special BBC Wildlife reader offer on Underdogs throughout February through NHBS. Underdogs is also available to buy on my website and on Amazon. With a donation from sales made to wild dog conservation, I urge you to please help this highly endangered carnivore by ordering your copy today.

Badger vaccination photos on NHPA…

Tying in with this week’s controversial announcement by the Government that Badger culling trials are to commence in England in 2012, my photographs of badger bTB vaccination trials are now available online through NHPA and Photoshot. Search on either site for ‘badger vaccination’ to find the images available or  contact me directly.

The shots were taken as part of a BBC Wildlife Magazine cover story tackling the ‘cull versus cure’ issue back in the autumn. The feature looked into the Badger Vaccine Deployment Project being undertaken by Fera as a trial to understand the viability of vaccinating badgers (instead of or alongside the proposed cull) to protect cattle from bovine tuberculosis (bTB). An edit of this portfolio can be seen on my website and on the magazine’s website discoverwildlife.com.

A portfolio of 16 shots from my new African wild dog book Underdogs is live on the BBC Wildlife Magazine website DiscoverWildlife.com. The gallery and captions provide an introduction to the species and to the wider story told in Underdogs, which is available for pre-ordering. Just like in this online gallery, the book aims to tell the story of a struggling species while celebrating what is a truly remarkable predator.

The Underdogs project has been three years in the making and was created with the assistance of the Endangered Wildlife Trust’s Carnivore Conservation Programme. With a donation from sales going towards African wild dog conservation efforts, Underdogs aims to make a real difference to the future of this endangered carnivore. Order your copy on my website before the 13th of December and you will receive a signed copy and a special pre-order discount. Please also share this link with anybody you know who could just be interested in making a difference to the future of this charismatic carnivore.
