Morgan (Mo) Heim is a Colorado-based multimedia journalist specializing in sharing the stories of science and environmental issues. An accredited zoologist turned science communicator, she splits her time working with non-profits, research institutes and magazines to help engage the public in wanting to understand our planet. Morgan subscribes to the belief that if you show people how amazing and interwoven the world is, they'll care more about what happens to it. In addition to being an associate member of the International League of Conservation Photographers, her work appears in such outlets as Smithsonian, High Country News, the Nature Conservancy, National Wildlife, and the WILD Foundation.
Morgan's favorite role is to generate the communication materials that are going to help with conservation, but she's also a champion for others who want to put their talents to good use. Soon, and in partnership with the iLCP and the WILD Foundation, she will be launching a public outreach conservation photography initiative for Nature Needs Half(TM). Nature Needs Half(TM) is the global vision of protecting at least half of the planet, land and sea, in an interconnected manner. Part of this vision will be to encourage people around the world to help document the progress of Half(TM) as they see it. Details on the hows, whys, and what to dos will be coming soon.
Morgan is also a regular contributor to Amy Marquis's blog, "The Digital Naturalist," a site dedicated to helping journalists and non-profits learn how to use multimedia more effectively. There's all sorts of goodies there, from critiques, Q&As, articles and aggregations of new music, workshop, and production resources.
