Who is not drawn to spectacular imagery? Wildlife, people, landscapes; a good photo is captivating and, many times, offers you an opportunity to learn more about the subject.

On March 25th, the Houston Zoo will be welcoming world class photographer, and Director of the International League of Conservation Photographers, Cristina Mittermeir as part of our Call of the Wild Speaker Series. Come out to enjoy an evening of scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, breathtaking photographs and first-hand stories from conservationists on the frontlines in the battle to help save the world’s wildlife and habitats. Just click on the Call of the Wild link above for ticket information. While you are there, pick up Cristina’s new book The Wealth of Nature on pre-order and pick it up at the lecture.

The International League of Conservation Photographers mission is mission is to translate conservation science into compelling visual messages targeted to specific audiences. We work with leading scientists, policy makers, government leaders and conservation groups to produce the highest-quality documentary images of both the beauty and wonder of the natural world and the challenges facing it.

You may have caught Joel Sartore or Kevin Schafer at one of our previous speaker events – both ILCP members. If you missed them, pop on over to their websites and prepare to be amazed. Another ILCP member, Frans Lanting will be our guest speaker in October 2010.

The Houston Zoo partners with these individuals and organizations because we believe, as ILCP notes, that awe-inspiring photography is a powerful force for the environment. Our goal is to help our visitors enjoy the natural world which surrounds us, whether through a quite stroll through the zoo, or through the lenses of our colleagues.
