Since tomorrow is International Biodiversity Day I thought I’d post some links to a few amazing galleries of wildlife photography that have been recently published online.

First we have the Guardian‘s slideshow of ‘New species discovered in Foja mountains on Indonesian island of New Guinea‘, including candid photos of a tame giant wooly rat, the smallest known member of the kangaroo family and a tiny tree mouse.

Next, there’s the Telegraph‘s piece on Belgian wildlife photographer and ecologist Guido Sterkendries, which features 27 images from the rainforests of Panama and Brazil.

The London Times features a small but worthwhile gallery of wildlife from the Indonesian Island of Borneo from back in April.

Finally, we have that old reliable standby National Geographic. Click on the link to see a collection of their many animal Photos of the Day.
