Meet Joel Sartore

"My job is to...get people to see what's going on. It's not hopeless." -Joel Sartore

No, it's not hopeless. But getting the public to realize that simple things they do every day without thinking about them ( like flushing the toilet, throwing away recyclable things, and using non-biodegradable cleaning products), can have huge impacts on the natural world isn't easy. But we are past the point that thoughtlessness and ignorance are excuses. I came across this article last April and saved it. Giving voice to the voiceless is not hopeless, but it's no easy task and there need to be more people doing it. This is what I want to do, FIGHT THE APATHY! I would like to meet this man and pick his brain. And shake his hand.
