Welcome to ELADIO FERNANDEZ Caribbean Conservation Photography!
I’m a conservation photographer and a naturalist based in the Dominican Republic. My work focuses in the Caribbean because this group of islands has a huge diversity of poorly known animals, plants, and landscapes. At the same time, our natural heritage is seriously threatened by agriculture, poor management of natural resources, habitat destruction, and climate change.
Aside from photography and filmmaking, I'm interested in the science and conservation aspect of things. Creating visual resources is a great to tool for conservation, but we have to get involved beyond image making. Activism, science and conservation actions are a must if we are to preserve what is left. Time is running out for some countries and islands.
Please follow my work on Instagram and Facebook to stay updated. I will be starting a visual blog soon as well.
