BG Group and Conservation International launch Conservation through Photography Alliance

Through the power of images, Conservation International (CI) and BG Group, a global natural gas business, have entered into a partnership to build universal awareness of the importance of our natural world and to demonstrate how photography can be used as a tool to conserve it.

Recognising the importance of photography for conservation in the world's biodiversity hotspots and wilderness areas, the Conservation through Photography Alliance will focus on creating unique opportunities to acquire, capture, store and disseminate conservation imagery.

Photography is essential to document conservation actions, challenges and success, especially for people who have never travelled to a tropical forest, coral reef or wetland. Images are a powerful tool for building pride among local communities of their natural heritage, motivating the general public to change their consumption habits and influence international leaders to take action to support conservation and sustainable development.

"As an organisation that works closely with the Earth's natural resources, we are committed to making a positive contribution to the protection of the environment," said Charles Bland, Executive Vice President, BG Group. "Our partnership with Conservation International will provide funding to research and document biodiversity hotspots, using the power of photography to raise awareness of the beauty, diversity and fragility of the natural world, and to serve as a reminder of the importance of preserving this precious heritage for future generations."

The Conservation through Photography Alliance will focus on four key areas:

  • Training field conservationists in photography. Training seminars will be developed to enhance the photography skills of field biologists, communicators and other conservationists to better document their conservation work in the field.

  • Enhancing coverage of undocumented places and species.
