Creating Images of the Natural World for Scholarship and Conservation
With each photo that I create, the image is not simply about seeing the animal but having an insight into its life, and a deeper understanding of its behavior and how they relate to each other and their world.
Through sharing my images, I hope to bring a greater understanding and appreciation of the natural world in order to further research and conservation.
Check out and download (free) a children’s coloring book on lemur conservation, and my new children’s conservation program here.
Contact me if you’re interested in developing a children’s outreach activity book customized for your research site, species, and conservation issues.
