Photographer Captures The Beauty Of Animals Saved From Black Market Trade
In her ongoing series aptly titled “Where the Wild Things Are,” Los Angeles-based photographer Natasha Wilson shines a light on the ethereal beauty of wildlife saved from entering the black market trade.
The wild animal black market involves the capturing and selling of animals with the intent to house the undomesticated creatures as pets. Before being sold however, the animals are imprinted by humans, meaning their natural instincts such as hunting is trained out of them, making it impossible for them to survive in the wild.
Because of this, California-based wild life sanctuary Animal Tracks has built a refuge for animals who survived the trade.
