Conservationist and Photographer, Celina Chien, is giving a voice to wildlife in the age of the Anthropocene.
"I stumbled across a few other photographers and I realized that I've never even considered it before as a medium of \ communicating conservation and communicating science but I found that it was the perfect bridge between conservation and scientists and the academic world and the public because, you know, we hear all these statistics and we hear about all these horrible facts, you know, the sixth mass extinction and you know it makes us feel helpless. And also it's just so big and abstract and having photos that can be shown, emotional connection between people and environmental issues. I think it can really start a discussion and spark action." Celina shares in her interview about finding photography and using it for science.
In this episode she shares how a new conservation starts out in the field and why she connected with wildlife.
