Women are Key for Conservation.

Mentorship, Teaching and Building Female Networks are the way to make this happen.

Promoting and celebrating women’s work in the natural world, providing access and opportunity through mentoring, masterclasses, and networking.

Women are underrepresented in storytelling about nature and wildlife. Films, essays, and photographs that explore the natural world have often prioritized male contributions. What is the point of view of women in this field? What does their perspective offer? Do they allow us to see things differently? Can they help us to reconnect to the species with which we share the earth?

As we enter the sixth mass species extinction and a global climate crisis, the human connection with the natural world has become one of the greatest challenges of our century. It is important now more than ever to give voice to the female point of view.

Nature Through Her Eyes is in partnership with the VII foundation.

The VII Foundation’s mission is to transform visual journalism by empowering new voices and creating stories that advocate change. In a world where beliefs and actions are increasingly out-of- sync with facts and realities, transforming visual journalism is an urgent task.

At the center of The Foundation’s work, the educational ethos remains central and is applied throughout the production of long-form projects: presenting lived experiences, documenting complex problems, and seeking sustainable solutions.

The VII Foundation has executed several high-profile projects which have been published as books in multiple languages, exhibited worldwide, reviewed in leading media, and taught as educational circulars.
