As always during our wildlife tours, the highest ethics in wildlife photography will apply. Respecting and protecting our wild subjects is always the first priority. Animals are not called in nor baited, so no species can be guaranteed. Also, no sensitive information that could put a species in danger will be given. Any inappropriate behavior towards the animals will cause the participant to leave the workshop without any refund. Visit our page “Our ethics” for more details on the ethics we follow.
