So amazing to have the opportunity to work with the extraordinary group of humans who are the National Geographic Explorers. It was the most incredible experience teaching this weekend and more importantly also learning so much from them. Great hope for the future, some really incredible work here.
Big shout out to all at National Geographic, and all the amazing staff working on this.
I’m just returning from the National Geographic Photo Seminar in the US. This was an extraordinary week of talks and presentations. When poaching has escalated exponentially in the past decade; more than 7,000 rhinos have been killed in the past ten years alone, and The World Wildlife Fund estimates that 20,00 to 30,000 African elephants are killed each year for their tusks. Then it’s at times like these that I realise how important all the work done on this subject is, and how humbled I am by the continued support and mentor-ship received from all those I work with at National Geographic, and elsewhere. We can not, and should not turn away.
Thank you all for sharing your amazing work and thoughts this week.
I’ll be giving the keynote address here at the opening event 03 November 2015 at 19.00h and showing ‘with butterflies and warriors’ recipient of the POYI Environmental Vision Award 2015
