Although she has dedicated her life to saving the world’s oceans, Cristina Mittermeier has also traveled to all the continents focusing on how climate change is impacting isolated communities.
And, on Wednesday morning, she will share her stories and award-winning photography from those journeys with the San Joaquin Valley Town Hall audience at Fresno’s Saroyan Theatre.
“Images can help us understand the urgency many photographers feel to protect wild places,” says Mittermeier. “My work is about building a greater awareness of the responsibility of what it means to be human.
“It is about understanding that the history of every living thing that has ever existed on this planet also lives within us. … and that we have a duty to act as the keepers of our fellow life forms.”
