"Coyotes, they will keep you on your toes. No matter what curve balls we throw at them, they figure out ways to do one better. Coyotes symbolize parallels experienced by marginalized society, and have revealed biases of what's considered acceptable nature in our cities. By spending time immersed in the coyote's world, I hope we can solve some of the mysteries of how they are so good at what they do, and learn about ourselves in the process. After all, if we want others to learn to live with animals like lions, elephants or leopards in their midst, shouldn't we do the same here at home?"

Contributing Photographer

Morgan Heim has been sneezed on by a whale, stampeded by bison and almost mistaken for salmon by hungry grizzly bears, all of which she took as great compliments, considering they let her live to spy on wildlife for another day.

With a background in zoology (BS) and environmental journalism (MA), Morgan employs photo and filmmaking techniques ranging from aerials to camera traps and good old-fashioned photojournalism in order to share human stories of the natural world.

She is an Associate Fellow with iLCP, on the board of NANPA and alum of the prestigious Missouri Photo Workshop. Her work has appeared in the Banff Mountain Film Festival, as an official select in the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and in such outlets as Smithsonian, National Parks, National Geographic NewsWatch, GEOLino Extra,, The Nature Conservancy and High Country News.

Morgan currently resides in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband Philipp and their tree-climbing dog, Javier.
