At the height of the famine in Ethiopia a two-year-old girl weighs in 3,000 grams. At the hospital in Mekele, children were weighed every day to establish whether their bodies would be able to process any food. Hans-Olav Forsang: 'I was sent to Ethiopia on assignment by my newspaper, Verdens Gang. At the time the world was becoming increasingly aware of the huge scale of the famine. Norway started the biggest aid campaign ever, and my eight-page picture story made a significant contribution…

A polar bear travels submerged under water - a tactic often employed to surprise prey. As part of a fragile Arctic ecosystem, the bears are threatened by the recent dramatic reduction in ice cover. Sea ice - frozen seawater that moves with the ocean currents - provides an important habitat and resting place for many animals. The Artic ice cover reached a record low in 2007. Many attribute this situation to global warming.

Penguins shake off water after a swim, which completes the rinsing process and helps re-waterproof their plumage.

Marine microfauna from the ocean off Hawaii come under closer focus. A 'Glaucus' nudibranch (sea slug) is no bigger than a US quarter coin. It preys on toxic Portuguese-men-of-war, appropriating their stinging cells for its own defense.

Road kill: Kangaroos are common victims. Thousands of Australia's native animals are killed annually on the expanding network of roads crossing the outback. Housing developments and deforestation have already reduced natural habitats, and roads add a further hazard for local fauna.

A camera trap set up at the mouth of a cave captures a female cougar and her cub seeking refuge from the cold. Cougars, once in decline, have for the past 40 years been making a comeback across the western United States—though they remain extremely elusive. The cats are protected in California and Florida, but prized game in 13 other states.

Unlike chimpanzees, who are territorial and combative, bonobos are relatively peaceful creatures, and appear to use sex as a means of social communication. Sex, for bonobos, is not restricted to male-female copulation during the…
