Conservation and documentary photographer, Andrew S. Wright, presents on and shows photos from his most recent book, The Pelican’s Paradise: Preventing Extinctions.

Andrew has documented their work on five of these islands—Gwaii Haanas, Canada; Okinoshima, Japan; Kaho’olawe, Hawaii; Palmyra Atoll, Northern Line Islands, South Pacific; Isla Floreana and Seymour Norte, Galapagos—and will present their fascinating story through his incredible photographs.
