Mike is a passionate conservationist, wildlife photographer and a lifetime member of the
American Cetacean Society and World Wildlife Fund. Wilderness areas and their inhabitants are under increasing threat from habitat destruction, overpopulation and wildlife poaching. Unchecked pollution and excessive fishing are decimating our oceans and endangering the environment of marine animals.
For a quarter of a century, Mike's passion for the environment and conservation has centered on his love of travel and wildlife photography. Many animal and plant species are going extinct at an alarming rate. We live in a time when nature finds itself in a fragile state. There are less habitat and more people, fauna and flora are under severe pressure. Wildlife Photography can be a powerful tool for conservation. His mission is to promote the understanding and appreciation of the world's biodiversity and the need for its preservation, through the lens of wildlife imagery. Powerful wildlife and nature images are effective and emotive tools in building public awareness and education in combating this worrisome decline.
As appreciation in wildlife and conservation grows, so does interest in wildlife photography and whale watching. For most people, trips to game reserves, national parks, wildlife and marine sanctuaries, supplemented by visits to zoos, offer the best opportunities to appreciate and photograph wildlife.
