Dispatches From the Field: Stories From a Conservation Photographer
Mac Stone returns to Boca Grande to discuss a number of fascinating projects he’s been working on – including America’s most endangered bird, the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow; a natural phenomena which occurs once a decade in the desert of California, called the “Super Bloom”; and the history of Florida’s Freshwater Springs, the freshwater equivalent of coral reefs.
Mac Stone is a conservation photographer from Gainesville, Florida. Growing up exploring the springs, swamps, and hammocks of North Central Florida, he developed a passion for photography at a young age. Over the years his camera has carried him to some of the most remote and imperiled areas this side of the globe. For six months, Stone lived in Ecuador during the presidential overthrow of 2005 and worked with Wildlife Conservation Society biologists in the Amazon rainforest. Soon after, he moved to Honduras and lived in a small village along the Cangrejal River. Through photography, Stone strives to start new conversations and expose the dynamic relationship between mankind and the natural world. When he is not photographing the bottomlands and backwoods of the southeastern U.S., Stone is a product tester for Columbia Sportswear, a Google Trekker, winner of the Save Our Seas Foundation Marine Conservation Photography Grant, official photographer for Savage Race, a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers and the Executive Director of Naturaland Trust.
