A group of the world’s most renowned photographers, as well as conservationists like Jane Goodall, have partnered to support conservationist efforts through the sale of photo prints, with the goal of linking conservation with the impact of photography.

One hundred of some of the world’s finest and well-known photographers and conservation heroes like Jane Goodall have come together to rally around the cause of saving the environment. Using their art, they are raising funds to support grassroots conservation organizations, focused through Vital Impacts. The initiative will support Big Life Foundation, Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots program, Great Plains Conservation’s Project Ranger, and SeaLegacy.

Vital Impacts is a women-led, non-profit created by award-winning National Geographic photographer Ami Vitale and Eileen Mignoni. Vitale tells PetaPixel that they have gathered some of the biggest names in photography and conservation and have asked these artists to put their work up for sale, with 60% of the net profits going toward grassroots conservation campaigns.
