AG Nature Photographer of the Year 2020: Threatened species shortlist
NEW ZEALAND ROCK WREN (Xenicus gilviventris). STATUS: ENDANGERED. While walking up to Gertrude Saddle, I came across these exquisite birds flitting between the rocks. They are the only truly alpine bird in New Zealand.

In this category, we asked for photos of flora or fauna that have been deemed threatened, rare, vulnerable or endangered. This shortlist is a reminder of how many beautiful animals face extinction if we do not act.
These photos will be exhibited at the South Australian Museum in Adelaide from Friday 28 August until Sunday 15 November 2020.
