GRAHAM WISE

Graham is passionate about communicating how important the natural world is for humanity. Through beautiful imagery, identifying species, and telling life-cycle stories, Graham hopes to foster wonder and respect for our fellow animals, especially the ones that creep and crawl.

Graham left a management position in Australia and moved to Ecuador to create Fundación Colonso and help establish IKIAM University, a university being built in the Amazon for the Amazon. For other information about Graham, go to Graham's LinkedIn page.

Graham hopes that living a machete's length from the jungle will help him appreciate the incredible diversity within tropical rainforests.
"I am dying by inches,
from not having anybody
to talk to about insects."
            - Charles Darwin, 1828
