Central America’s Wildlife Through the Eyes of Its People… and Their Cell Phones

IN THIS DAY AND AGE, IT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY TO OWN A PROFESSIONAL CAMERA TO GET INVOLVED IN WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY; THIS IMAGE OF A WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER USING A CONVENTIONAL CAMERA WAS TAKEN WITH A CELL PHONE (PHOTO CREDIT: JEREMY RADACHOWSKY)
CENTRAL AMERICA COMPRISES ONLY 0.5 PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S LAND SURFACE, BUT IS HOME TO ABOUT 7 PERCENT OF THE PLANET’S BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY. GIVEN INTENSE THREATS TO WILDLIFE, SUCH AS HABITAT DESTRUCTION AND ILLEGAL TRADE, A MOTIVATED PUBLIC MUST SPEAK UP FOR THE REGION’S ANIMALS, FORESTS, AND OCEANS.
