Farewell to Flamingos (24) More files...
Pete Oxford and Renee Bish document the world's rarest flamingo - the James' or Puna Flamingo (Phoenicoparrus jamesi) which was at one time considered extinct. The photographers travel to Laguna Colorada located in the altitudes of the Central Andes to document these animals that are being stressed by borax mining, tourism and illegal egg collecting. They document three flamingo species feeding side by side - James, Andean and Chilean.
