Using Your Photography to Get Involved in Conservation Projects
Looking for a way to do something for the environment with your photography? Maybe you’re just looking to add another purpose to the photos you take. Whatever the reason, NANPA’s Conservation Committee encourages you to choose a citizen science subject that interests you and find out how you can take photographs and submit them to a larger research project.
Skilled nature photographers can contribute to citizen science projects with a range of subjects including insects, plants, wildlife, landscapes, mammals, butterflies and so much more. The Conservation Committee has compiled a list of projects that are currently looking for citizen science contributors.

NANPA Conservation Committee
The Conservation Committee (formerly the Environment Committee) is one of NANPA’s oldest committees. The Conservation Committee works to educate members on conservation photography and conservation issues of importance to nature photographers. It encourages and informs nature photographers on how to undertake conservation projects, helps support and promote conservation projects of nature photographers, and is exploring creative ways for NANPA to sponsor or support broader member projects. The Conservation Committee also helps select the recipient of the Philip Hyde Grant – a grant to support a NANPA member’s environmental photography project.
