Giving Tuesday - Please Join Us

Dear Friends,

As you know, I’ve devoted my life to creating impactful images to protect the places and species I love. Through visual storytelling, I attempt to connect people to these issues and inspire action. I am a part of a global Fellowship of visual storytellers with similar missions, goals, and ethics.

I know first-hand the power of visuals. These are recent images from the western New Mexico mesa land, semi-arid yet supporting some of our most ancient American civilizations - Acoma, Laguna, Zuni, Navajo and before that, the Puebloan civilizations at Chaco Canyon just north of these spots.

Giving Tuesday is November 27th, I’m thankful to be a part of this group of passionate visual storytellers, and in fact, a Senior Founding Fellow. A donation to iLCP is an investment in conservation images to protect the pristine and diverse places on this Earth. Please consider donating here.

Any amount will go a long way and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.

Wishing you a great holiday season,

Connie Bransilver, Senior Founding Fellow

Season's Start in Naples

iLCP WILDSpeak Electrifying

We come from 28 countries, joining to share our conservation projects and explore current critical issues.  All 108 of us have earned the title of “Fellow.” I am proudly a Senior Founding Fellow and current Board member. We represent the world’s leading nature, wildlife and cultural photographers and filmmakers. At WILDSpeak we join with scientific and conservation organizations as well as interested individuals to explore shared goals. WILDSpeak 2017 comes at a time of major policy shifts and in the environmental landscape, when foundations of historical, hard-fought wins in conservation feel as if they are disintegrating, causing opinions to rage. As the emotional stakes are high, it is crucial that we discover sound solutions and ways to push our shared conservation goals forward.

WILDSpeak 2018 is planned for Washington, DC, November 13 & 14, 2018.  Subsequent venues are being considered for India and Germany. Everyone is welcome.

Note:  We are still digging out from Hurricane Irma, seeking roofers, landscapers, fence builders and all.  The pain does not stop when the film crews move on, but at least we now have power, clean water and a dry, sturdy house and studio.  The Everglades ecosystem is still under very high water.  How the changes such as the salinity balance will affect the flora and fauna is still unknown.  What Caribbean seeds may have been blown into our sub-tropical paradise?

iLCP Senior Founding Fellow and Board of Directors, Connie, spent a week in Washington at WILDSpeak

with her international conservation photographer colleagues.  Steve Winter keynoted Big Cats — remember the photo of the panther on a ridge in front of the HOLLYWOOD sign? — while Brian Skerry brought us Luminous Seas - his are the memorable shark images — while Sandesh Kadur explored India’s Mountains of Life. Many awesome others. We need, now, especially, to support conservation efforts not only for our precious Everglades (Guardians of the Everglades, of course), but also conservation around the world.  iLCP members bring the beauty and need for care to all of us.  It’s past Giving Tuesday, but not too late to make your 2016 tax deductible contributions to Guardians of the Everglades - http://www.wifv.org/events/#id=245&cid=783&wid=401 or to the International League of Conservation Photographers - http://www.give2gether.com/projects/focus-on-conservation-2016.babyrat/  

WE ALL NEED TO STEP UP NOW!

Naples Art District 1st Wednesdays
OCT. 5TH - ARTS ALIVE, 5-8 pm

SALON AT SEVEN - “BUT IS IT ART?”

Studio at 1719 Trade Center Way #3
Naples, FL 34109

A short video will ask “What is art?” to get the discussion started. Mirriam-Webster’s definition is “something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings.”  What do you think? Let’s start the conversation.

Is It Art or Is It Love?

 

Portrait of Beauty or Idea?

 

Here’s where we are -

DC area readers, join us November 15 & 16 for WILDSPEAK!

It’s photography, conservation and communications presented by iLCP.  Information at iLCP.com or sign up at http://tinyurl.com/htvtfus

 

Peace
