Morgan Heim

Country: United States 🇺🇸

Morgan (Mo) Heim is a conservation photographer, filmmaker and adventurer focusing on the ways human-influenced environmental changes impact wildlife. With a background in ecology and journalism, her goal is to find the beauty, humor and perseverance in stories about wildlife, and how those stories teach us about who we are and what we might become. She’s lived among seabird colonies with scientists studying climate impacts, trekked across the tundra to find the world’s fattest reindeer and descended beneath the Astoria-Megler Bridge to observe cormorants, which has driven home the fact that wild stories are everywhere. Morgan is a Senior Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers, a mentor for Girls Who Click and founder of Neon Raven Story Labs — a storytelling and strategy platform for conservation. In 2020, she co-launched Her Wild Vision Initiative aimed at raising the voices of diverse women in the craft of conservation visual storytelling. Her work appears in outlets such as Audubon, Smithsonian, National Geographic, Newsweek and The New York Times. 

She lives in Astoria, Oregon, where the waves are big, the mountains close, and the weather not nearly as bad as everyone thinks it is.
