Every now and then, it occurs to me that a significant event in my past escaped my blog. This entry is to note this special publication released in December, 2014. BIOPHILIA-THE WAY OF LIFE, produced by Synchronicity Earth, for the International Union of Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) 50th Anniversary of the Red List of Threatened Species. The book was produced in coordination with the BioPhilia Ball, held on 22 November 2014, in London's Natural History Museum, where three of my works were also offered up at auction for this benefit. The five images depicted below were used in this book, a copy of which may also be viewed online. This 370+ page book contains excerpts written specifically for this publication by notable conservationists such as Adam Sweidan, Founding Trustee and Chair, Synchronicity Earth; Julia Marton-Lefevre, Director General, IUCN; Douglas Tompkins, President, Conservation Land Trust and Founder, Foundation for Deep Ecology; Dr. Jerome Lewis, Lecturer in Social Anthropology, University College London; Paul Kingsworth, Writer, former Deputy Editor of The Ecologist; Prof. William Sutherland, Conservation Biology, Zoology Department, University of Cambridge; Dr. Simon Stuart, Species Survival Commission Chair, IUCN; Dr. William Darwall, Manager, IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit; Prof. Jonathan Baillie, Director of Conservation Programmes, Zoological Society of London; Prof. Alex Rogers, Professor of Conservation Ecology, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford; Dr. Heather Koldewey, Head of Global Conservation Programmes, Zoological Society of London; and Dr. Sylvia A.
