We are excited to announce our newest Instagram Takeover! Photographer, conservationist, amphibian expert, and author Robin Moore will be managing Rainforest Trust’s Instagram account for the next three days. Robin is using the takeover as an opportunity to highlight amphibian diversity in Guatemala’s Sierra de los Cuchumatanes.
Earlier today, Rainforest Trust announced the purchase of a 2,000-acre ranch in the Cuchumatanes Mountains by local partner FUNDAECO. The ranch – which was spared from imminent destruction – will be converted into a new amphibian reserve providing refuge for threatened wildlife in Guatemala’s cloud forest.
Robin, who visited the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes in July of 2014, will be sharing favorite photos from the visit on Rainforest Trust’s Instagram feed until Friday.
Robin’s photographic work has been featured in National Geographic, Telegraph Magazine, Conservation Magazine, American Photo, Outdoor Photographer, Wanderlust, and TIME for Kids among many others. He is the author of In Search of Lost Frogs and the subject of a recent documentary, The Frog Photographer.
“I’ve had a sneak peak at some of Robin’s photos from Guatemala and our Instagram followers are in for a real treat,” said Cat Kutz, Rainforest Trust’s Conservation Outreach Manager. “The species in this area are really striking and Robin, as usual, did an incredible job of capturing their otherworldly character.”
Rainforest Trust uses Instagram as a way to connect followers with engaging images of the places and wildlife we work to protect.
