The Rare Beasts List (So Far)

My Rare Beasts Project is in its research phase. This is the two month period I allotted myself to decide upon which animals to include in the series and to find the farmers in my region who have these animals. Wherever possible I hope to visit local farms in order to photograph the animals myself. If this is not possible, my plan is to accumulate photo references -either copyright free or which I have permission to use- from wherever I can find them.

If you have breeds of livestock which are currently on the Livestock Conservation List then I would love for you to get in touch with me at rarebeastsproject@gmail.com or just click the ‘contact’ link on the right of this page.
