Virginia Wildlife Corridors and Crossings Project: A Conservation Photography Project

Creating habitat connectivity in Virginia by creating wildlife corridors and wildlife crossings.

Creating Habitat Connectivity

Lori volunteers as a partner photographer with Virginia Safe Wildlife Corridors Collaborative.

As a Virginian and a conservation photographer, I am working closely with Virginia Safe Wildlife Corridors Collaborative and Wild Virginia to educate and bring awareness to the need for wildlife corridors and wildlife crossings in Virginia through my photography and storytelling. Wildlife corridors and crossings are essential for the safety of the wildlife and to decrease the amount of vehicle-animal collisions in Virginia.
