“No matter what the issue is, it has to be handled at the grass roots. When you take part in something, even though that movement may lose, the juices start flowing and you feel you count.” — Studs Terkel

“Any river is really the summation of a whole valley. It shapes not only the land, but the culture of that valley. To think of any river as nothing but water is to ignore the greater part of it.” — Hal Borland


Art for Conservation (AFC): Working with conservation photographers, artists and organizations, AFC markets fine art prints to support environmental causes.

Bridges to Understanding: Bridges uses digital technology to build cross-cultural understanding. Students tell community stories using online forums and curriculum.

Extreme Ice Survey (EIS): Founded in 2007 by James Balog, EIS is an innovative, long-term photography project merging art and science into a “visual voice” that explains the planet’s rapidly changing ecosystems. Single-frame and time-lapse cameras record changes in the glaciers every half hour, year-round, producing stunning videos that reveal how fast climate change is transforming the planet as extraordinary amounts of ice vanish with shocking speed.

Glacier Research Imaging Project: To document the dramatic loss of glacial mass in High Asia, GRIP uses archival photographs taken in the past century by the world’s greatest mountain photographers shown in contrast with contemporary images by mountaineer and photographer David Breashears of melting glaciers in the Himalayas, to spread awareness of the loss of our “reserve bank” of vital water resources in Asia.

International League for Conservation Photography (ILCP): ILCP Fellows and Associates translate conservation science into compelling visuals.

North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA): NANPA promotes nature photography for communication, nature appreciation, and conservation.
