GRAHAM WISE

Graham is passionate about communicating how important the natural world is for humanity. Through beautiful imagery, identifying species, and telling life 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 FundaciĆ³n 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 Academic website or his 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
