News, events, shows and schedules for Connie's photography and the Guardians of the Everglades project.

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?
