As CI’s Photo Coordinator, I work with amazing photography and the leading photographers in conservation.
Recently, the Conservation in Focus Alliance, CI’s partnership with BG, debuted an incredible exhibit called BG Thrive! in London, and now it has traveled to Brazil. It is being held at the The Botanic Garden in Rio de Janeiro from October 15- November 9, 2009.
The exhibit features some of the most dominant conservation photographers like Luciano Candisani, who is member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP). Through the Conservation in Focus Alliance, Luciano was able photograph some amazing imagery like this Northern muriqui (Brachyteles hypoxanthus) – a critically endangered resident of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest (above). Less than one thousand remain. To help revive them and other unique species, CI has helped create green corridors linking the remaining fragments of the Atlantic Forest, assuring animals have a wider home to roam.
