Welcome to the Wetlands Video (WATCH)

The wetlands of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park are home to many species of unique birds, fish, mammals and plants. Thai locals set fish traps in the mucky waters and even eat the white seeds of the lotus flower plants that grow in these nutrient rich waters.

The fishing cat hunts for prey and likely seeks refuge from the loud sounds of shrimp farm industrialization in the park.  Watch this clips we filmed using two GoPro underwater cameras and see the biodiversity that lives in this area.

    I’ve always been impressed with Mo’s growing use of video in her work.

    Sounds kinda silly but I strongly believe that music is a crucial communication tool for educators and photojournalists using video. I really like your musical selections. They add greatly to the impact of the video.

    I bought a Canon 5D mark II camera for my own work partly because of it’s 1080p HD quality video coupled with the superior optics of still image cameras. My plan is to use it to interview paleontologists while doing field work in the Grand Staircase-Escalante wilderness next summer.

    What you folks are doing right now is an inspiration for me.
