Wildlife photography festival Montier en Der is completed.
It was four days of happiness shared with hundreds of visitors. In the program, many meetings, lively discussions and interresting persepectives for the future of my exhibition on tigers. My location in the building, near the renowned professional photographers, has allowed me to measure the remaining path to do.
A beautiful experience that I will do as soon as I have a good project!

The third exibition of natural photography of Barr has just closed its doors. 1800 persons had a look on the 18 exhibitions during these three. In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, 18 exhibitors were able to present their works to a very interested public. My exhibition " the end of the tiger " received a very favorable welcome and has allowed each to wonder about the sustainability of the nature in front of groups maffioso ready to kill everything for some money!
"The end of the Tiger" is primarily a photographic exhibition on tigers, but, as its title suggests provocative, she wants to be a reflection on the survival of a flagship species. The exhibition is accompanied by texts on the life of human populations in contact with the predator, the protection of the species and the threats to the survival of wild tigers.
Participation (photographs and field data) to the atlas of wild mammals in Champagne Ardenne which is subscription to the LPO Champagne Ardenne until 20/02/2012.

Richly illustrated with photographs and maps, it includes many previously unpublished information on more than 70 species but also on inventory methodologies, specific pathologies of mammals, conservation status ...
This book is the result of collective work done by members of several structures. He asked mammologiques good skills and a large research literature.

I will be tour leader for Objectif Nature a 17 days trip in Namibia: The Namib desert, the Atlantic Coast, Damaraland, Etosha Park. A great journey in search of oryx and desert elephants all in stunning scenery!
I just finished the development of a new destination "tiger" with "Objective Nature". http://www.objectif-nature.com/fiches-voyages/Fiche-voyage.asp?fiche=1738
Two parks Tadoba and Bandhavgarh, they are probably the best places in the world to observe and photgraphier the tiger.
A special issue dedicated to photography safari destinations, testimonials, hardware, everything is there, yours truly too!
The good news is that the 1411 estimate is up ( 2006) and 1706 in 2010 ! An increase of about 16%
However, it should not declare victory too soon, the state of Madhya Pradesh (called the state of the tiger) has seen its tiger population decline by 40 tigers. (Bandhavgarh Tigers lost 11 in 15 months!)
Only 530 tigers were counted with a safe method , it is a count conducted in national parks with camera traps, the 1176 Tigers are identified with other methods much more accurate!
Poaching has not ceased, but many Indians are mobilizing to save the tiger, and then we must hope !
I accompany a new destination in search of the tiger! Tadoba!
Tadoba National Park is a small park with little possibility of accommodation that is why he stayed out of the destinations offered by travel agencies which has preserved its tranquility. However tiger's comments are very frequent, like many Indian photographers that park where you can also see gaur (Indian bison) of dholes, sloth bear and many birds
