About Me Morgan’s favorite projects involve exploring the dynamics of human-wildlife issues, including stories of land use, wildlife conflict, cultural connections to nature and the adventure of scientific expeditions. She is particularly interested in solutions-oriented story-telling using photography and film to shed light on the promising side of conservation. With a background in zoology (BS) and environmental journalism (MA), she employs photographic techniques ranging from aerials to camera traps, photojournalism and film in her quest to share stories that matter. Morgan is an Associate Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, (iLCP),alumni of the Missouri Photo Workshop (MPW 64), and her work has appeared in such outlets as Smithsonian, National Parks, National Geographic NewsWatch, and BBC Wildlife. Her project, CAT in WATER, founded with Joanna Nasar, has garnered international attention for the endangered fishing cats of Thailand, so far having reached a readership of more than 2 million people. She recently completed a 10-part film series called “Our Future Forests: Beyond Bark Beetles,” about the impacts of the bark beetle epidemic in Wyoming and Colorado. This was completed in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the University of Wyoming’s Ruckelshaus Institute, and is being used around the West to raise awareness about how to live in a changing forest. In 2014, Morgan formed OK, Possum! Productions with six of her environmental journalism colleagues, a collective dedicated to producing honest, artistic and unexpected visual media packages about living with wildlife. When she’s not working on assignment, you can find her with her nose stuck in a book, (zombie novels), playing video games, (also zombie-related), or out on the trail with her husband and their tree-climbing dog, Javier.
