 Our new calendar has arrived! 

Titelfoto des Bildkalenders

"Zarte Bande – Mensch und Tier 2015" - the new picture calendar of the Society for Threatened Peoples (STP) delights with very special images. You can almost feel the wing beat of the golden eagle that rises into the air of Mongolia. The caution with which a Bishnoi in northern India holds a newborn Antilope in his hands shows his compassion for the orphaned baby animal. The Dinka in southern Sudan with their Zebu cattle, the Bakhtiari with their goats in the Iranian Zagros Mountains, a Native American woman on her Mustang in Wyoming, a young Tibetan monk with his kitten and an elephant swimming in the Ocean at the Andaman Islands together with his keeper – the large-format color photographs on the pages for each month are surprising, touching, stirring.

On the back of the pages, you will find profound, entertaining and exciting expert reports on the relationship between mankind and animals in different cultures.
