In this exhibition, Norbert Rosing presents the diversity of German national parks and conservation areas: the basalt fields in the Rhön Mountains, the King's Chair (white cliffs) on the Baltic coast, the red rocks of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, etc. He delves deep into the world of German forests, visits Baltic Sea islands such as Hiddensee, ventures up into the Watzmann mountain in Bavaria. Along the way, he has created a unique portrait of German natural landscapes.

Norbert Rosing is one of the most well-known nature and wildlife photographers in Germany. His work has been published in magazines such as National Geographic. His specialist subjects are the Arctic and its inhabitants, polar bears, and the natural wonders of Germany. His latest work "UP HERE", which captures wildlife in the Arctic, will be available this September (publisher Knesebek Verlag, Munich). Besides his work as a photographer, Rosing is also actively involved as a UN Decade Ambassador for Biodiversity.

The exhibition Wild Germany will take place at the Species Conservation Center at Hellabrunn Zoo in collaboration with CEWE Stiftung & Co. KGaA in Oldenburg. The exhibition will be open to the public until 25 September 2016 during normal zoo opening times, from 9 am to 6 pm, daily.

Since adopting the Hellabrunn polar bear cub Nobby in 2014, Rosing has maintained close ties with the zoo. His work has been presented in four lectures and a previous photography exhibition entitled In the Realm of Polar Bears, which was showcased at the Species Conservation Center between December 2014 and February 2015.
