Zach is a wildlife biologist with a focus on herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians). He received his B.A. from Ithaca College, and completed his M.A. in biology from SUNY Buffalo State. Zach’s work has taken him throughout the United States, and abroad. He has worked with government agencies (USGS, USFWS), non-profit organizations (The Great Basin Institute, The Biodiversity Group), and within the private sector. Zach has been chronicling his journey through photographs and writing since 2008. As a passionate environmentalist, Zach hopes his work inspires others to embrace Earth's diversity in all of its complex forms.
