Using photographs to reconnect people with the wildlife on their own doorsteps

Photographs by Clay Bolt

Nature photographer and WWF staffer Clay Bolt is passionate about connecting people with the biodiversity right outside their doors. To that end, in 2009 Bolt started Meet Your Neighbours with Scottish wildlife photographer Niall Benvie. Dozens of photographers around the world snap species in the field on a bright white background, offering a closer relationship to the wildlife in people’s backyards.
