I am honored to announce that my Pampas Cat picture is a finalist in the terrestrial wildlife category in the Big Picture Natural World Photography Competition, organized by the California Academy of Sciences.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists of this years competition! I would like to especially congratulate Nayan Khanolkar for the coolest camera trap shot of a leopard I have ever seen and Pete Oxford, who is the definition of a conservation photographer, and a personal hero of mine.

You can see the overall category winners here:

and the other terrestrial wildlife finalist images here:

Finally, you will be able to see all the pictures in person starting July 29th, 2106. I hope you are able to!

This Pampas Cat photograph was taken as part of the Cat in Thin Air project and would not be possible without the help of the Andean Cat Alliance, Juan Carlos Huaranca Ariste, Alejandra Rocio Torrez Tarqui, and Ma Lilian Villalba. Thank you to all of you!

  1. Congratulations, Sebastian! I would love to see your photo and all the others at the Academy of Sciences.
    Your Pampas Cat shot is incredible!

    I was hoping we’d see you and Kailani before you leave, but Steve and I will be in Seattle for a little vacation. Enjoy your new home!
    Love,
    Cathy

    • Thanks Cathy! Kailani and I wished we could have seen you guys before we left, but hopefully it won’t be too long before that happens again (maybe Christmas?).

      Hope you had a great time in Seattle!
      Sebastian
