Where Conservation and Photography Meet

 

 

Welcome!

 

The Wild Focus Project is about merging nature conservation, photography, and storytelling in order to protect biodiversity. The beautiful and astonishing variety of life on Earth is under threat from human activity. But we can also protect the wild by using one of our most human qualities: the ability to tell stories.

 

Storytelling takes many forms. One that's become extremely popular and accessible recently is digital photography. Wildlife photography allows us to experience and remember nature in a unique way, and share that experience with others. Through wildlife photography and other types of storytelling, maybe we can protect the many creatures who call this planet home.
