Lots of inspiring and unusual images to the site were added to our site in June 2012. Highlights included Vladmir Medvedev's amazing images of wild Amur leopards and Siberian tigers, great coverage on endangered species and their conservation from new contributor Roland Seitre, Florian Mollers' gorgeous golden snub-nosed monkeys from China, and magical Scandinavian wildlife and landscapes from Erlend Haarberg and Markus Varesvuo.
