Robin Moore attained a PhD in Biodiversity Conservation from the University of Kent in the UK, and for the past decade has tirelessly dedicated himself to the conservation of our fragile ecosystems. As Amphibian Conservation Officer with Conservation International, Robin supports local NGO's working to protect critical habitats in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Robin uses photography as a powerful tool to promote conservation and influence attitudes and behaviors. At a recent meeting with local government officials in Sulawesi to propose the creation of a new protected area, the local "Bupati" asked if he could furnish his office with one of Robin's images of a toad from the forest. A small request with big implications. He later approved a new protected area ten times the size of that proposed. He can be proud that he has helped save the toad that looks at him from above his desk each morning.
Robins images have been featured by National Geographic Traveler, the Telegraph Magazine and TIME, National Geographic, The Economist and the BBC online news among many others. They frequently grace the publications of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Conservation International and numerous other NGOs worldwide.
Robin recently had two images selected in the top ten in National Geographic Traveler's World in Focus Contest, and has been a finalist in Contests that include Nature's Best, Photo District News, The International Conservation Photography Awards, Asia Geographic and the Worldwide Photo Gala Awards.
