A unique project

In Ouwehands Zoo located in Rhenen the Netherlands, there are two hectares of forest specially for bears and wolves. Visitors can walk a huge bridge high above the ground from where you can observe the animals in the forest. The man with the hat is one of the bearkeepers who was informing people about the bears and their diet and why bears act the way they do.

In the Bear Forest, brown bears which were formerly mistreated now live a carefree life. They share a two-hectare wooded plot with the wolves. The features include a waterfall, rocks and a pond. A unique project!

The Bear Forest was initiated by Ouwehands Zoo Rhenen and Alertis, the fund for bear and nature conservation.

A few candid shots taken at the new library in Almere Stad. Although the library is already five years old the name is still “the new library” which made sense … five years ago :) I love the building and these shots do not do justice to it at all, mind you. Just some atmospheric stills.
