Biology Without Borders
Photography by RTPI President Twan Leenders
September 16 – November 20, 2016
RTPI is pleased to present their newest exhibition entitled Biology Without Borders: Photography by RTPI President Twan Leenders. This awe-inspiring collection of works now on view will immerse visitors in the Central American locales where RTPI staff, affiliates and student researchers conduct research, and the exotic and in some cases critically endangered creatures upon which this work is centered.
As part of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute’s goal to increase awareness and understanding of the natural connections between species, habitats and people, Twan Leenders engages in international research and educational initiatives. Like Roger Tory Peterson, Leenders travels the world to explore, discover and documents its flora and fauna; he applies his photographic talents to visually capture plants and animals in far-away regions to make their existence known to a broad audience, while his biological observations and knowledge support conservation efforts to help elicit positive environmental change.
