Morgan (Mo) Heim raises a camera for one purpose – to capture moments in an animal’s life that will make us consider what that life means. Inevitably, those stories involve people as much as wildlife. How we treat them. Why we need them. What we love, or hate about them.
With a master’s in environmental journalism and a bachelor’s in zoology, Mo brings skills from both arenas to her conservation storytelling. She is a senior fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) and former board member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). She has documented the plight of endangered fishing cats in Thailand, gone deep into the forests to photograph California’s illegal marijuana grows and now the coyotes we find in our backyards.
You can find her work in Smithsonian, World Wildlife Fund, Discover, NationalGeographic.com, Nature Conservancy Magazine and BBC Wildlife. Her award-winning films have played at Banff Mountain Film Festival, Telluride MountainFilm, Adventure Film, the International Wildlife Film Festival and COP 22.
