Yucatan RAVE Preview


An expedition of 32 leading conservation photographers undertaken from July to November resulted in a portfolio of hundreds of images that serve as a warning of the conservation status of this area known as the heart of the ancient Mayan civilization. The Rapid Assessment Visual Expedition or RAVE is a project of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP).

The photos were released at the opening of the 9th World Wilderness Congress (WILD9) in Merida, Mexico. The event is gathering senior-level representation from governments, the private sector, native peoples and non-governmental organizations to address the role of conservation of wilderness areas in human well-being and climate stabilization.
