The Uluguru Bush Shrike (Malaconotus alius) has hardly ever been photographed in the wild and is regarded as the rarest of all birds of Africa. These critically endangered canopy dwellers are confined to a small area of the Uluguru forest reserve, with population estimates of less than 1200 pairs in the wild. 

This artwork was commissioned by Global Environment Facility and iLCP (International League of conservation Photographers) , and the illustration has been published in ‘Defying Extinction: Partnerships to Safeguard Global Biodiversity,’. The publication highlights some of the most threatened pieces in the fabric of biodiversity, specifically individual species at risk.
