Mike Fay

A National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence and Wildlife Conservation Society conservationist, Fay is best known for a 455-day, 2,000-mile trek across Africa known as the MegaTransect. Later he flew 70,000 miles at low altitude taking photographs every twenty seconds to record the impact of human activity on African wilderness. Most recently, he spent a year hiking through 700 miles of California’s Redwood forests, collecting data and documenting the state of the one-of-a-kind ecosystem.
