This dazzling volume filled with nearly 300 dramatic full-color photographs brings the bounty of the borderlands to the coffee table. These images leave no doubt of just how much wildlife lives here, where Texas and Mexico meet – possibly more per acre than anywhere else in the United States.
Visit our nation’s last frontier through the eyes of 20 wildlife photographers from the world-over as they focus their lenses on the harsh mesquite and cactus badlands just north of the international border. In this third volume of the Images for Conservation Pro-Tour series, these pros work their shutter fingers to the bone while competing in the 3rd bi-annual Pro-Tour of Nature Photography Contest and documenting nature’s life on the line.
While the emphasis is definitely on the photos, Images for Conservation: Book Three – Borderlands of Laredo, Texas Edition also includes a biography of each photographer, a history of the participating ranches, a moving dedication to rancher and philanthropist Renato Ramirez written by Mary O. Parker, a motivating forward by Texas Parks and Wildlife Executive Director, Carter P. Smith, and a piece by Images for Conservation founder, John Martin, reminding us of the important role nature photography plays in helping conserve habitat.
