We have started 2021 with a big influx of environmental and travel images. Notable new additions include people and landscapes from inaccessible regions of China, coverage on fires and flooding, and graphic photography of chemical residues and the threat to sharks from over-fishing. Look out for desert plants and Californian condors from North America, unique wild honeybee coverage, endangered turtles and Konik ponies from one of Europe's most prominent rewilding projects. Not to mention a rich mix of wildlife, plants and scenics from around the world.
