This week, Ed had the great pleasure of chatting with conservation photographer and storyteller Mike Forsberg. Mike has devoted much of his career to telling stories from North America’s Great Plains, and his work has been recognized by many well-known organizations, including Audubon, National Geographic, and the Nature Conservancy. He’s the author and photographer for several stunning books, and the co-founder of the Platte Basin Timelapse – a one-of-a-kind project that is discussed in detail in this episode.

Mike and Ed connected virtually and had an inspiring conversation, discussing everything from the importance of storytelling in the conservation movement to his career trajectory as a professional photographer. They talk about the significance of the Platte Basin, and the critical role that ranchers and other private landowners play in the region’s ecological health. They also chat about teaching the up-and-coming generation of conservation storytellers, measuring success in the conservation field, Mike's vision for the future of conservation in the Platte Basin, and much more.
