About the Event
In partnership with the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, The Coudert Institute is thrilled to present the conservation photographer MAC STONE as he shares his work documenting Florida's Everglades. Through photography, Stone strives to start new conversations and expose the dynamic relationship between mankind and the natural world.
Mac grew up exploring the springs, swamps, and hammocks of North Central Florida where he developed a passion for photography at a young age. Currently, Mr. Stone's work focuses on America’s swamps in an attempt to change public opinion towards our country’s wetlands. After spending five years living and working in the Everglades watershed, he released a 304-page coffee table book about the heralded River of Grass. Everglades: America's Wetland, published by University Press of Florida and is now in its second printing. In March of 2015 he delivered his first TED talk, which has now been viewed over 1 million times. Click HERE to view.
A National Geographic explorer, Mac Stone is a senior fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, a Sea Legacy fellow, and is also the executive director of Naturaland Trust, a non-profit that permanently protects critical lands in the upstate of South Carolina. Presently, he is working with National Geographic exploring the remaining old growth swamps of the United States to understand how the southeast used to look and function. Mr. Stone also serves as a Board member of The Everglades Foundation.
