On January 20th, CNCC will have Weldon Lee present: The Wild Horse: Symbol of the American West

Mr. Lee will present a program about the wild horse, their origins and the problems they are facing in today’s world. You’ll learn how he is using his images to help protect them, which in turn will give other photographers ideas on how they can use their images for the preservation of wild places and the protection of our wild brothers and sisters.

Payday loans were devised especially to help people who needed fast internet income online because of some unexpected emergency bill that needed to be paid straight away and they had no other way of raising the cash in enough time. Payday loans are convenient but convenience comes at a price and these types of loans should never be used to raise cash quickly unless it is absolutely necessary, learn more about it at https://www.paydayloansnow.co.uk/payday/direct/no-brokers/.

Weldon Lee travels around the globe to the world’s most exotic locations photographing wildlife and capturing the essence of their personalities in his images. He has a special way of communicating with animals and his images depict that relationship.

Weldon’s work has been exhibited in the Denver Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. A University of Northern Iowa photography professor ranks Weldon among the top five wildlife photographers in North America.

Weldon’s early work focused on wildlife in the Rocky Mountains. His first book, Watchable Birds of the Rocky Mountains, initially published in 1992, contains over 50 photographs depicting a cross-section of the avian species found throughout the Rocky Mountains. Erwin and Peggy Bauer, friends and lifelong wildlife photographers, had this to say about his second book, “No region of North America offers so many opportunities for wildlife photographers as the Rocky Mountains. No one has ever described its wildlife and captured their natural beauty so thoroughly as Weldon Lee in A Guide to Photographing Rocky Mountain Wildlife.”

Weldon’s images and articles have appeared in numerous magazines including Mature Outlook, National Wildlife, Backpacker, National Parks Magazine, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Outdoor Photographer, Petersen’s PHOTOgraphic, and Nature Photographer. In addition, his photos illustrate text and natural history books by Macmillan, Westcliffe, Falcon Press, and Roberts Rinehart to name just a few. Weldon’s work has been featured on all the major television networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC.

In January, 1995, Weldon was elected Chair of the Education Committee of the North American Nature Photography (NANPA) and served three years in that capacity. In addition to being a charter NANPA member, he is also a member of Rock Mountain Outdoor Writers & Photographers and in 2007 received that organization’s Selected Works Award for Excellence in Photography. The American Bald Eagle Foundation recently honored Weldon as the 2010 Photographer of the Year.

“Unless we act now, many wildlife species face extinction during this century,” proclaims Weldon. “Hopefully, others will feel the passion I have for our wild brothers and sisters and will motivate them to become involved in wildlife preservation. Maybe, just maybe, my photography and writing will be the tipping point necessary to make that happen.”

Henry David Thoreau wrote, “In wildness is the preservation of the world. ” Let us cherish and protect those wild places and the creatures that inhabit them.”

Together, we can save our wild brothers and sisters. The time to act is NOW!
