For his story on the Tolga Bat Hospital and the flying foxes of the Atherton Tablelands, Jürgen Freund wins the 2016 IUCN Prize or lauréat bourse in the 2015 Terre Sauvage/IUCN’s Nature Images Awards. The prize is a fellowship assignment – to shoot a photo story of his choice species identified from an IUCN’s SOS Initiative.
