Presented by Dave Ficke

Dave Ficke is an American nature and wildlife photographer and conservationist. Dave’s thirty years as an environmental educator and life-long wildlife enthusiast has nurtured a love of nature and its beauty, which he has captured in his photographs. Long an advocate of conservation and stewardship of our natural environment, he has passionately taught those principles as a high school science teacher. Dave believes in experiential education and for 33 years took his high school students on weeklong field trips to Yosemite, canoeing down the Colorado river and sharing many other outdoor experiences with his students.

Dave’s entire career has been influenced by his dedication to environmental conservation; his roles as both photographer and field biology teacher have reflected this. Dave believes he can capture a great many people’s attention regarding the rapid loss of species in our wild places across the globe, with his camera as well as his in-depth knowledge of earth’s rapidly deteriorating ecosystems. “It’s critical that our students understand that all of us are part of this earth ecosystem, and we need to protect our wild places and the species that live there.”
