National Geographic Photography Seminar Inspires Impact Through Imagery

Conservationist and National Geographic Explorer Mike Fay, award-winning photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols, and writer David Quammen gathered together for the first time in years to reflect on the 1999 African Megatransect project. This more than 2,000-mile expedition, supported by the National Geographic Society, was a turning point in conservation, inspiring bold initiatives to explore and document the world’s wildest places and to show governments why they deserve protection. The Megatransect project did just that, informing the president of Gabon’s decision to set aside nearly 11 percent of Gabon’s land mass for 13 national parks. Many conservationists cite this project as the catalyst influencing them to pursue a career in conservation.
