"My goals are to promote the lawful, ethical and responsible treatment of all wildlife and to support additions to our treasury of public wild lands as befits the Forgotten Coast's unique and irreplaceable bio-diversity.

My hope is that these images and stories remind you of the urgent need to protect and nurture the heart and soul of Florida's Forgotten Coast, its wild creatures in their wild places. They have nowhere left to go.
