The New Big 5 project is an international initiative to create a New Big 5 (#NewBig5) of wildlife: the Big 5 of photography, not hunting. Shooting with a camera, not a gun.

It is a celebration of wildlife and wildlife photography. We’re asking people around the world to VOTE for the 5 animals they want to be included in the New Big 5 of Wildlife Photography.

The world’s wildlife is in crisis. The next 10 years are critical. More than a million species are currently at risk of extinction, from elephants, cheetahs, orangutans, lions and polar bears to ‘unsung heroes’ and little-known cats, frogs, birds, lizards and other species, each too valuable to lose.

We want the New Big 5 project to focus attention on all of the world’s incredible wildlife and the urgent need to act together globally to save these animals, our planet and ourselves.

We can make a difference. It’s not too late… yet.


“What a great project the New Big 5 is. I wonder what the final choices will be? There are so many incredible animals in our world, all fascinating in different ways. Any project which brings attention to animals, so many of whom are threatened or endangered, is truly important.”
Dr Jane Goodall
Founder, The Jane Goodall Institute


“The Big 5 initiative is a beautiful, poignant reminder that all of nature and all of life is threatened on this planet. We must all do everything we can to care for the plants and critters that inhabit the Earth. They are fellow travellers and our only friends in this enormous universe. Our future happiness depends on all of them.”
Ami Vitale
Photographer


“I’m excited about the New Big 5 project. It says something positive about our world that people are now more interested in photographing wildlife than killing it. Of course, we have a long way to go in wildlife conservation. I support this project in the hope it can bring more attention to the many threats that animals face.”
Tim Laman
Photographer


“The New Big 5 is a brilliant idea. A Big 5 from the photographic point of view is one more brick in a wall that we’re constructing to save many of the creatures around the Earth.”
Art Wolfe
Photographer


“Wildlife around the world will benefit from the New Big 5, from the inspiration and wonder generated by photographs of amazing animals to the passion of people working to preserve at-risk species around the globe.”
Krista Wright
Executive Director, Polar Bears International


“The original Big 5 were selected by trophy hunters as the species they’d most like to hang on their walls. Society has changed and trophy hunting is on the way out – thank goodness. The New Big 5 is a wonderful project that’s about celebrating life, not death.”
Virginia McKenna
Founder, Born Free Foundation
