Fusing wildlife photography and science communication by Mogens Trolle
Mogens Trolle is a Danish award winning wildlife photographer, zoologist/mammalogist, and author. For a number of years, he conducted mammal research in unexplored areas of the Amazon and the Brazilian Pantanal, pioneering the use of camera traps for scientific purposes in South America, studying species like ocelot, puma, maned wolf and tapir, and discovering a new deer species in Peru. Then he made the transition from research into full-time wildlife and science communication, publishing books on the wildlife of Africa, Greenland and the Galapagos. For the last 13 years, he has been working with science communication at the Natural History Museum of Denmark. Mogens will talk about his career and about how a combination of wildlife photography and science can be used to reach a broad audience.
