Eye on the Wild: Conservation Photographer Suzi Eszterhas 


Award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas is one of the only women in her competitive, adventure-filled industry. She specializes in documenting the family life of endangered species. Based in California, Eszterhas spends several months each year in the field, photographing animals from the poles to the tropics. She is well known for her unprecedented work with newborns, including lions, cheetahs, tigers, gorillas, orangutans, penguins, bears, and sea otters. Much of her work has been published in Smithsonian, Ranger Rick, National Geographic Kids, BBC Wildlife, and TIME magazines, as well as on Good Morning America and TODAY online. She is a fellow of the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers, and leads photography tours around the world.

Eszterhas is also the author of the new Eye on the Wild series, a series of six books for children featuring stunning photographs and informative text. Each book follow one species from birth to adulthood through the lens of Suzi’s camera. Visit www.suzieszterhas.com to learn more.
