Saving Seabirds - June 5, 2018

Join us June 5th for an evening at National Geographic! We will be heading over to their headquarters to see famous photographer and explorer Thomas Peschak talk about some of the world’s most amazing seabirds including, penguins, albatross, and puffins!

National Geographic magazine photographer and explorer Thomas Peschak journeyed to some of the planet’s most remote islands for a feature in the July 2018 issue. Get an inside look at the story to learn why the world’s majestic and ecologically critical seabirds—penguins, albatross, puffins, and hundreds of other species—are vanishing, and learn what we can do to help.

Originally trained as a marine biologist specializing in human-wildlife conflict, National Geographic magazine photographer THOMAS P. PESCHAK became a wildlife photojournalist after realizing he could have a greater conservation impact through photographs than through statistics. His work now focuses on documenting some of the planet’s most critical marine and island conservation stories. Thomas has shot eight feature articles for National Geographic magazine and is currently photographing his next two stories on some of the world’s most remote islands. A National Geographic Explorer, he is also a founding/associate director of the Manta Trust, the former director of conservation for the Save Our Seas Foundation, and a senior fellow at the International League of Conservation Photographers. Thomas has written and photographed seven books and is a multiple winner of Wildlife Photographer of the Year and World Press Photo awards.
