As nature photographers, we are the beneficiaries of the blood, sweat, and tears of a conservation movement whose ideas can be traced back deep into the 19th century. From the landscapes that we traverse to the wildlife that we marvel over, so many of the subjects that we compose inside of viewfinders today are here only because of the tireless work of organizations and individuals who have dedicated their lives to protecting and ensuring that those places and species would continue to be here for generations to come.
Jared Lloyd Photography believes that it is our responsibility as photographers to give back to those groups who continue to work towards protecting the places in which we work, as none of this would be possible without their tireless efforts in the field and in the court room. It is for this reason that we are committed to donating 2% of all proceeds from photographic workshops to those organizations doing significant work in the areas where we lead trips.
We hope that this idea will spread, and others will join us to create a movement of Photographers for the Planet.
Bellow you will find a list of the various groups that we are committed to supporting.
The Lovely Poison Frog – Phyllobates lugubris
In Panama alone, over 30 species of amphibians have gone extinct in the last decade thanks to the exotic Chytrid fungus that has swept across the neotropics and much of the rest of the world. The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama’s team of researchers are fighting to save species such as this lovely poison frog from suffering the fate of others across this country.
