Thomas P. Peschak is National Geographic Photographer, Explorer and NGS Storytelling Fellow who specializes in documenting both the beauty and fragility of the world’s oceans, islands and coasts. Originally trained as a marine biologist, he embraced photojournalism 15 years ago after realizing that his photographs could have greater conservation impact than scientific statistics.

He is also a Founding/Associate Director of the Manta Trust and a senior fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. His images and stories have won 17 Wildlife Photographer of the Year and 7 World Press Photo Awards.
