The Tiger Center


Family, community, and I co-founded The Tiger Center, an organization that helps us all Help the Tiger, Help the Environment, and Help the People who care for and guard them both. We've written whitepapers on conservation and economic development that have been discussed in the Parliament of India and affected public policy. We promote eco-technologies an use them in leading ways, e.g. in our rural sewing school, powered entirely by solar energy. We also run community programs to support the people who are the guardians of the tiger and the forest. To date, we've provided healthcare to over 3,500 people; given blankets, clothing, water filters, and more to over 10,000; certified over 150 women in sewing (now able to support their families with tailoring businesses); established a factory that converts forest waste (lantana) to furniture; and more. We keep everyone up to date via Facebook and have several photography books available on Amazon:

Sharks & Coral Reefs


Sharks & Coral Reefs


As you can see from the shark book above (shared with The Tiger Center for fund raising), I love to watch, feed, and photograph sharks (yes, that's me right under the shark, above).  I also record the little and spectacularly-beautiful creatures that inhabit the coral reefs where these tropical sharks swim.  The photo collection is free to enjoy on Facebook and below:

Here's a new collection from Halmahera, Indonesia (KLM Sunshine, Blue Bay Divers).  This may be the next hotspot after Raja Ampat.....
