Habitats & Inhabitants | Photography Exhibition by Prof. Mark Lindhult

Photographs by Professor Mark Lindhult of birds and wildlife and their habitats. 

Birds are a barometer of environmental health - literally the canary in the coal mine. With 2018 being the "Year of the Bird", these photos are intended to bring awareness to these spectacular beings and the special places they inhabit. It is imperative that we preserve these habitats for their survival and our own.
