Spanish photographer Diego Lopez's assignment took him to Latvia, one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Europe. 44% of the country is forested, and there are thought to be 80,000 beavers still surviving in the wild, many of which live in the 19,000 hectare Teici State Reserve, the largest protected bog in the Baltic. One of Diego's target species was the Black Stork: 10% of the world's population breed in Latvia's forests, along with many other marshland species endangered elsewhere in Europe.
