mountain-pine-beetleIn 2013-14, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests hired the Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming to help them communicated information about the bark beetle outbreak to forest users. As part of my job at UW, I worked with the Forest Service to produce ten short documentary films about the bark beetles. We hired Morgan Heim, who filmed and edited the videos.

pronghorn-migration

The Wyoming Department of Transportation funded the first ever wildlife overpass structures, designed and built especially for migrating pronghorn antelope. Just west of Pinedale, Wyo., two overpasses and six underpasses will save the lives of hundreds of mule deer and pronghorn, while averting danger to drivers. Wildlife photographer Joe Riis, who documented the western Wyoming pronghorn migration using motion-sensor triggered cameras, says this overpass project can set an example for helping wildlife migration in other places, too. See Joe’s pictures and read captions at National Geographic News.

In the spring of 2009, wildlife photographer Joe Riis and I followed the migrating pronghorn through the mountains of western Wyoming in an effort to understand their drive to reach the summer range in Grand Teton National Park. Watch the video at High Country News.

In 2008, I assisted National Geographic photographer Steve Winter on assignment to camera trap snow leopards in the Himalayas in northern India. I shot video, and NGM staffer Hans Weise used it to produce this multimedia piece. The video was nominated for a 2009 Webby Award in the documentary category for Best Individual Episode.
