Welcome !
Thursday, 26 October 2006


Welcome to naturphoto.de. This site features the work of Christian Ziegler, a biologist turned photojournalist whose focus are tropical rainforest and their inhabitants. Under threat in many ways and vanishing on all continents, tropical forests harbour the majority of life forms on our planet and deserve our protection. By introducing some charismatic forest animals and their interesting biology, Christian hopes to raise awareness for the problems and support for conservation efforts.

Since 1998, Christian has worked on a variety of subjects, from Army Ants to Ocelots, from Tree frogs to Bats. During this time, he has helped develop new techniques, that allow him a closer, more intimate and personal look into the lives of rain forest inhabitatants.

We want to invite you to join us for an expedition to some interesting creatures of the jungle, their fascinating natural history and unique beauty.

In stories, you will find a selection of Christians stories, with a short introduction and a photo essays in the attached galleries. The news section informs about recent events and publications while you can find some more about Christians background  and motivation in 'about Christian' and philosophy.

Thanks for your visit, and please come again, more stories will be posted soon.
