Top conservation photographer Ami Vitale discusses rhinos, pandas, hope and more
Ami Vitale is an award-winning war correspondent turned conservation photographer, and her iconic images of animals like Sudan the Rhino adorn the pages of National Geographic and other top outlets often. But she's so much more than a woman with a camera, rather, she's a force of nature helping create change and grassroots conservation all over the world through her work, words, and advocacy.
She joins the podcast to talk about the most inspiring and heartbreaking moments from her recent projects (don't miss the beautiful story at the end about the behavior of elephant orphans) and she shares where she finds her seemingly boundless energy and optimism.
Here's this episode's top news items:
- Study declares ancient Chinese paddlefish extinct
- ‘Tainted timber’ from Myanmar widely used in yachts seized in the Netherlands
- New monkey discovered on “island” amid deforestation in Brazil
