Guardians of the Everglades®

To introduce the public to the fragile beauty of the Everglades and its unique ecosystem; to honor today’s leadership in conservation and restoration through great art and compelling human stories; and to encourage the public and policy makers to participate in the protection of the Everglades.

Life is Fragile


Sometimes called the Photographer from La Mancha, my friend, colleague and dedicated environmental photographer, Gary Braasch, made documenting the effects of climate change his life’s work. He died this month while snorkeling and photographing along the Great Barrier Reef. Gary once noted that we have a lot of technology addressing climate change, but nothing’s going to happen until we actually FEEL it ourselves and SEE it. (Same with Everglades conservation.)  Read more about Gary Braasch at

èBella Magazine’s March 2016 issue features NEW LIFE - GIRAFFE, as well as four other images in “Wildlife as Art,” about the passion that drives my work.  If you are in Naples, the issue is on the stands now.  If not, a link will be available next month and it will be included in the next newsletter.  In the meantime, enjoy these images.
