French photographer Christophe Courteau has recently joined Nature Picture
Library. His favourite place in the world - apart from the coast of his
native Brittany - is the Okavango Delta and we are pleased to add to our
online collection a selection of stunning aerial photos of this wetland
paradise as well as close-ups of many of the animals that live there.
Courteau has also documented the saving of Niger's white giraffes. Down to only 49 individuals in 1979, today more than 170 survive thanks to
conservation efforts which encourage the local population to conserve them as a tourist asset.
