CONSERVATION CHAMPION: IRENE AMIET
Alison Janicke, EWT Head of Resource Development, email@example.com
Irene Amiet is a freelance writer and internationally renowned photographer. A native of Basel, Switzerland, Irene currently lives Ribble Valley in Lancashire, UK.
Irene has volunteered and worked on exciting projects all over the world, including research on Leatherback Turtles in Panama and big cat density research in Limpopo, working as a correspondent for Coast Magazine and running an online blog on outdoor photography for the Galveston Daily News in Texas. In addition to a large variety of images featured internationally, Irene has also produced breath-taking collections of images, such as that entitled “Avian Ballet”, which captures the dance-like performances of wading birds’ in their natural seagrass habitats, and “Love Letters From Africa”, a coffee table book of wildlife and nature in Southern Africa, with diary extracts from Irene Amiet. All proceeds of the sale of this book will go to the Endangered Wildlife Trust, South Africa.
As a nature and wildlife photographer, I believe it’s a duty to give back a little towards conservation efforts. The regions I’ve been privileged to live and work in are closest to my heart and as I know the grassroots conservationists personally, I am convinced their work makes a difference and can assure you that any moneys raised goes directly into the right hands.
Over the years I have put signature pieces of mine up for sale with the revenue going straight to these organisations.
