I’m Juan Pablo Ampudia, a National Geographic photographer, and I’ve recently covered the fires in the Amazon forest—AMA!
EDIT: Thanks so much for your questions! I had a lot of fun answering them and appreciate your desire to take action on this issue! I've got to jump on some other stories now, but please do read the story about the inside efforts to help animals hurt by the Amazon fires and share it with your friends! Until next time, thanks! – Juan Pablo.
Hi Reddit! I’m Juan Pablo Ampudia, a documentary photographer for National Geographic who focuses on the aftermath of different social and economic events around the world with particular interest in resilience. For about the past six months I’ve been working on a project about how animal agriculture is the most destructive industry facing the planet today, addressing issues like climate change, deforestation, animal extinction, land use, water use, waste and health. In the last month I documented the wildlife affected by the fires in the Bolivian Amazon and the effort of a group of volunteers to cure the animals by giving them a new opportunity to live and be reintroduced into their natural habitat. Ask me anything!
