Gemina Garland-Lewis: Tracking Ghosts

Gemina Garland-Lewis: Tracking Ghosts

June 11, 2019

To say SAOLA Believer, Gemina Garland Lewis, wears many hats, is an understatement. Photographer, filmer, researcher, and National Geographic explorer - Gemina has visited over 30 countries across six continents. Her work explores the connections between humans, animals, and our shared environments. 

"My research focuses on health and disease issues at the human-animal-environment interface – sort of a conservation biology meets public health world. My photography also focuses on this, but can take a broader look at the different ways we form relationships with animals and with our environment, as well."

Recently, Gemina was accepted into a fellowship program at the International Wildlife Film Festival in Montana. The fellowship brings together people with different backgrounds and perspectives who are interested in conservation storytelling.

Along with her team of fellows, Gemina produced this mini-documentary about tracking mountain lions with a local Montana conservation organization and scientific research team. 

 

Gemina's other recent work explore the human-animal bond in homelessness and whaling communities in the Azores. Read her National Geographic article here
