Welcome to my conservation photography projects page. Currently, I am working on two conservation projects that mean a great deal to me which are the Virginia Wildlife Corridors and Crossings and my Butterfly Oasis Habitat Project.
Virginia Wildlife Corridors and Crossings is an important conservation photography project that I have undertaken to bring educate and bring awareness by writing conservation photography articles, blog posts and posts on social media.
My Butterfly Oasis Habitat Project came from me creating a backyard butterfly garden after a recent move to a new house. I wanted to create this butterfly and pollinator garden to especially help with the decreasing population of Monarch butterflies and to provide shelter, food, water, host plants and a variety of nectar plants for all butterflies. Spring 2022 will be my first spring with my backyard butterfly garden in this new house. I will be documenting and keeping track of my butterfly friends that pass through my backyard butterfly garden oasis. I will be tracking the Monarch migration as well as reporting my sightings to Journey North which is an environmental conservation organization that uses “tracking wildlife migration and seasonal change to foster scientific understanding, environmental awareness and the land ethic”. My backyard butterfly garden has been certified as a Monarch Butterfly Garden by the North American Butterfly Association and certified as a Monarch Waystation by Monarch Watch.
