About me
© Copyright Peter Jucker 2019 - Jucki Wildlife Photography
Since my early childhood I have been deeply fascinated by marine mammals. In the late 90’s, my passion became action and I started to film and photograph whales and other wildlife all over the world. Almost 30 years of experience at Swiss TV has been very helpful in this regard. Since that time I have been supporting non-profit organizations all over the planet. My deep motivation is to help the most beautiful creatures, the WHALES, in any way! I feel so privileged to have these opportunities and skills and want them to count in adding to ocean conservation. I am an “Impassioned Ocean Advocate” and I am proud to get that description from my friend Jackie Hildering, the impassioned marine educator, whale researcher, diver and brilliant photographer from Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
50 million years after their return to the sea, the whales find themselves in the predicament of being dependent on a group of primates who can destroy rainforests as easily as they can compose symphonies.... Jean-Michel Cousteau
