Photographer Art Wolfe stands with Washington Wild to protect wild lands and waters

Posted on Dec 7, 2016 in Uncategorized, WA Wild Blog


I am thrilled to be the Honorary Chair for Washington Wild. As a West Seattle based photographer who is constantly traveling the world to capture some of the most magnificent landscapes, I always look forward to coming home to the Evergreen State. Old growth forests, iconic peaks, crystal clear lakes—some of nature’s most stunning wild places are right here in our backyard.  

With the increasing uncertainty regarding future attempts to weaken and undercut public land protections, I stand behind Washington Wild’s tireless efforts to defend our state’s wild lands and waters.

Advocating for environmental protection is a priority for both me and my work.  Having spent countless hours in Washington’s Wilderness, I have developed an incredible connection to these special places. As a photographer, I work to capture nature’s splendor and share its beauty far and wide. Yet, when it comes to protecting these places from threats, I rely on Washington Wild to take action. Washington Wild has been a proven leader in both the defense and protection of our wild places, and now more than ever, their work is of vital importance.

By supporting Washington Wild, you are joining thousands of Wilderness Advocates across the state to make sure wild lands and waters are protected from threats like logging, mining and dam construction. In this time of uncertainty, it is imperative to protect and defend the wild places that feed our spirit. Washington Wild is prepared to fight harder than ever to protect our conservation investment in the snowcapped mountains, low-elevation old growth forests and salmon spawning streams that make Washington State such a remarkable place.

Please stand with me by donating to Washington Wild and helping them reach their special appeal goal of 500 supporters and $50,000 by the end of the year. 

Thank you for advocating to protect wild places in this beautiful state that I call home.
