A field biologist turned conservation photographer, National Geographic Explorer and filmmaker, Ronan uses storytelling to explore the relationship between humans and wildlife and dispels misconceptions that drive human-wildlife conflict. The exhibition features photos and videos from Ronan’s work in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic.
