Ultimate Urban Raptor
from the jungle to the city
Back in 2018 we spent six weeks documenting scientists and their work on African Crowned eagles in the urban jungles of South Africa's metropolis of Durban. As tropcial forests disappear in big numbes all across the African continent, these birds have adapted to urban and suburban environments pretty well. However, not all citizens are keen to share the space with such a powerful eagle. The story was first published in Terra Mater magazine in August 2020, Christine's portfolio was awarded at the Lugano Photo Days 2019.
