Photography for ecological restoration
22 July 2013
Barney Wilczak, a professional nature and conservation photographer from the UK, is documenting restoration work undertaken by member gardens of the Ecological Restoration Alliance of Botanic Gardens. His photos aim to promote and highlight the benefits of ecological restoration to a wide audience through exhibitions and project media. Barney will also provide free access to a selection of the images to all BGCI member gardens for use in education programs and for seeking funds to carry out further restoration work.
Barney is now seeking funds to support documentation of further restoration work undertaken by ERA member gardens. He is using Kickstarter, a crowd sourcing platform for creative projects, to raise funds for the project. In return for support to the project, Barney is offering a fantastic range of rewards including limited edition prints, behind the scenes project updates, photography workshops and portfolio reviews via Skype!

The Kickstarter project page will only remain live for 30 days, in which time Barney needs to meet his fundraising target of £5,000 to be successful. Please promote Barney’s exciting Kickstarter project through their social media and newsletters. The more people that hear about his project, the more support he will gain and the more restoration projects he can document!
