International Society of Tropical Foresters 2012 Photo Contest

A solitary clownfish peers out from the curtain of an anemone’s white tentacles. A Guatemalan river trickles endless through pools of blue and green.  A tropical sky blazes red and golden at sunset.

The winning photographs from this year’s International Society of Tropical Foresters Photo Contest, organized as part of the Society’s annual science and management conference, are as diverse as the tropical regions in which they were captured.  Representing images from more than a dozen tropical countries, these photographs tell the stories of the traveling students who took them – and they reveal the incredible beauty and fragility of the natural world that the Society has dedicated itself to studying and protecting.  These winning photographs depict forests in transition, solitary travelers and unique animals, indigenous communities and sweeping, epic landscapes.

We hope you enjoy them.
