The Chesapeake Bay...Something to R.A.V.E.* About
Over the summer of 2010, CBF teamed up with the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) to highlight the importance of the Chesapeake Bay through photographs, video, and stories from across the watershed—from Cooperstown, New York to southwestern Virginia.
The project resulted in hundreds of stunning photographs depicting the beauty and the challenges that are affecting the Chesapeake Bay watershed. You will be seeing them in future web pages and publications.
What is iLCP?
iLCP's mission is to further environmental and cultural conservation through ethical photography. Through R.A.V.E.s—Rapid Assessment Visual Expeditions—iLCP uses awe-inspiring photography as a powerful force for the environment, especially when paired with the collaboration of committed scientists, politicians, religious leaders, and policy makers. Through photography, video, and storytelling, iCP wants to replace environmental indifference with a new culture of stewardship and passion for our beautiful planet.
For the "Chesapeake Bay R.A.V.E.," ten world-class professional photographers volunteered their time to travel the watershed and visually document their experiences.
