Bay Soundings: Love Hurts! Some Nature Photographers Get Too Close

posted on April 25, 2013 in FL Coastal Islands Sanctuaries,Wildlife

Audubon’s Florida Coastal Island Sanctuaries was featured in an article in Bay Soundings encouraging ethical nature photography.

From Bay Soundings:

For more than 75 years, Audubon wardens in Tampa Bay have been the keepers of these special places. At first, we protected them from the plume trade and harvest for food that almost drove these birds to extinction. But today, these nesting birds face a new and unexpected threat: catastrophic disturbance by nature photographers. And worse, a few unscrupulous tour leaders in Tampa Bay are giving nature photography a bad name, and threatening the future of our area’s vibrant waterbird colonies.
