    He is an American artist that uses photography as the medium to explore the themes of ecology and time.

    James, great blog.

    I absolutely agree that we need to highlight women conservationists more. I direct the environmental conservation program at an all women’s college so increasing the number and contribution of women conservationists is our mission. I have recently started a blog ( to highlight the work that my students and other women are doing to advance conservation. We also have a twitter (@cedarcrestcoll), facebook (EnviroConservation), and instagram (environment_cedarcrestcollege) accounts. Please check them out if you are interested.
