Lucie Čižmářová

Lucie is a photographer of Stolen Wildlife and also a photographer and coordinator of veterinary care and welfare in The Kukang Rescue Program. Lucie’s photos capture animals in their natural beauty, but also in conditions they should have never got in. Especially on the photographs of slow lorises, she is trying to point out the harsh conditions in which the animals get when trafficked. Lucie works as a field zoologist at the Olomouc Zoo.

"Animals cannot fight the organized crime, which the illegal trade in animals is. If we do not want to lose them, it's time to fight for them."

"All wild animals have the right to live freely and I will always help them have it. I am ashamed of people who consider animals things for their own need and treat them cruelly."
