The Non-Profit Photography Initiative Trying to Save the World

These one-of-a-kind nature shots have a great cause behind them too! The women-led nonprofit organization Vital Impacts is hosting an ongoing sale of nature photography prints that will last until the end of the month. 60% of the funds raised will be donated to four programs dedicated to climate change: Big Life Foundation, Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots, Great Plains Conservation’s Project Ranger, and SeaLegacy.
Over 100 different photographers and conservationists from all around the world participate in this initiative that will last through December 31st. You can view these stunning shots below and shop for a print here.

As the temperatures plummet, the monkeys gather in the hot-spring pools to stay warm and socialize.

One of the founders of Vital Impacts, Amy Vitale, speaks about her reasoning for the initiative: "Each photo has a powerful story and illustrates how small and deeply interconnected our world is. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals."

Even without climate hazards, only 1 in 1,000 survive as they face the tides, hungry sharks, and birds of prey.
