Images for Conservation fosters conservation of wildlife through sustainable development, using the power of photography to integrate art, education, and natural history.
The Pro-Tour of Nature Photography is a series of professional tournaments, each one limited to a particular geographic region, designed to initiate and support a developing nature photo-tourism industry. Known for its natural beauty and bountiful wildlife, the Texas Coastal Bend was selected to host the second Pro-Tour of Nature Photography.
The images on this website are from the April, 2006 Pro-Tour of Nature Photography: Texas Hill Country. The beautiful photographs represent the work of 17 of the world’s finest nature photographers, taken over the course of 30 intense, sweaty and difficult 18-hour days.
