In Memory of Gary Braasch

Environmental photojournalist Gary Braasch casual portrait in Yosemite with NRDC hat.

iLCP Founding Fellow Gary Braasch died suddenly and unexpectedly on March 6, 2016 while snorkeling on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and conducting the climate change research that he was so devoted to. Gary was a tremendously vibrant member of the iLCP community, respected not only for his generosity of spirit and good humor, but also for his tremendous talent as a photographer and his amazing commitment as a conservationist. He worked tirelessly to educate us all about climate change and its many impacts around the world. He leaves us with a true legacy, an amazing body of work that will no doubt continue to inform and challenge us all to do better by our planet for years to come.

Gary will be very much missed by everyone at iLCP and our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.
