2020VISION

2020VISION is the most ambitious photography-based conservation initiative ever staged in the UK. It aims to establish in the public mind the crucial link between people's well being and a wilder UK, and to show that healthy ecosystems are not optional, but are something fundamental to us all. 20 of Britain's best nature photographers were commissioned to work on 20 flagship projects illustrating the 10 major habitat types in the UK. Nature Picture Library is proud to be a sponsor of 2020VISION and to be the exclusive photo agency for both still images and video from the project. New images are constantly being added to our 2020VISION collection as they come in from photographers working in the field.

2020VISION photographers covered many of the UK's iconic bird species in the course of working on their individual missions. In Scotland, capercaillie, ptarmigan and black grouse feature strongly, as well as white-tailed sea eagles and hen harriers. Britain is internationally important for its populations of breeding seabirds and wintering wildfowl and waders. Many farmland birds, such as skylarks, corn buntings and grey partridges have been badly affected by modern agricultural methods, while summer migrants such as swallows, wood warblers and cuckoos are vulnerable during their long flight south to their wintering quarters.
