Excerpts from the press release by Legacy Institute of Nature and Culture (LINC):
FLORIDA FOREVER has been preserving natural Florida for more than two decades. Yet more than a million acres of sensitive land and water are still in desperate need of protection. This year, Florida’s leading conservation photographers have joined forces to showcase what remains to be saved. The lenses of Chad Anderson, Clyde Butcher, Will Dickey, Laurie Meehan-Elmer, John Moran, David Moynahan, Judd Patterson, Jeff Ripple, Mac Stone, James Valentine, Carlton Ward Jr. and Eric Zamora, reveal stunning vistas, endangered shorelines, and forests that could all-too-easily be replaced by houses, shopping malls and asphalt parking lots.
The calendar was created by LINC. The mission of Legacy Institute for Nature & Culture is to raise awareness for natural environments and cultural legacies, educate about important connections between human societies and natural ecosystems, and promote conservation of natural heritage.
