"Why do animals collect in masses? This question is at the heart of our new project dealing with ANIMAL MASSES. Every year, millions upon millions of animals gather together all over the world. They collect in order to spend the winter together, to mate, to migrate in a community or to occupy new habitats. Some animals can only exist in masses, in effect forming super-organisms."

'Four years of intensive photography and research were necessary in order to bring this project to fruition. Trips lasting weeks and months took us to the various species. The greatest animal spectacles our planet has to offer take place where animals collect into masses. We have produced a report on the subject with a mixture of fascinating pictures and well-researched information. In ANIMAL MASSES, we present the subject of animal gatherings in a complexity that has never been shown before." - Ingo Arndt
