New Podcast Episode: Christopher Scharf

Javan Rhino, Christopher Scharf

In Episode 4 (Season 2) of the mammalwatching podcast we talk to Christopher Scharf , the customer that strikes terror into the hearts of the global travel insurance industry!

Chris chats with us about his 30 year quest to photograph the planet’s most iconic wildlife – a project that is destined to be a time capsule of 21st century wildlife observation. Chris talks about some of the near mythical mammals he has seen and the near mythical adventures along the way.

We hear how a quest to photograph a Markhor required an undercover journey into Afghanistan disguised as a local. He explains why finally seeing a wild Sumatran Rhino this year – after repeated attempts – still wasn’t enough to take that species off his bucket list. And he recounts some worryingly close encounters with both Tigers and tapirs.
