Doug is an award winning conservation and wildlife photographer whose images have been published by National Geographic, Australian Geographic, and the New York Times.

Initially trained as a zoologist, Doug later completed a Masters of Environment and then a Masters of Bioethics. Together, these two qualifications really helped shape the type of issues he felt he should focus on and why – namely conservation and wildlife.

A governor of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Australia, when not in the field, you’ll also occasionally find him teaching science communication or the power of imagry at the University of Melbourne and RMIT, as well as also running small photography classes and workshops.

His hope is that the images and the information he shares will inspire people to stop, think, and treat the world a little more kindly.
