Abstract

The union of the art of photography with the interdisciplinary study of the conservation of biodiversity has been shown to motivate conservation in the past, and this union will continue to be one of the most powerful forces for inspiring the protection of Earth’s biodiversity. This idea will be developed by examining examples where photography has been used to advance social change, investigating the origins of conservation photography, exploring contemporary conservation photography efforts, and finally, it will be complemented by a portfolio of original photographs.
