Doug is a professional conservation, wildlife and animal welfare photojournalist, whose clients include National Geographic Creative, BBC Wildlife, Australian Geographic, The New York Times, and the Australian Conservation Foundation. He initially trained as a zoologist, and later completed a Masters of Environment and then a Masters of Bioethics. Together, these two qualifications really helped shape his way of thinking as what type of issues he should be focusing on and why. In this episode we talk about his work with platypus, flying fox, and penguins that live within the cityscape in Melbourne, Australia. His hope is that the images, information and skills he shares, will help engage people to care more, and so behave differently, towards the world around them.
