We have been looking forward to this month’s issue of IN Focus. Our April issue gives us the opportunity to really talk about something that is an urgent matter and a subject close to the heart of this company and Nicholas Price himself – preservation and conservation and what we can do to help save our planet. Earth Day is officially celebrated on Aprill 22nd but that hasn’t stopped anyone and everyone seriously talking, engaging, educationg and empowering a global grass roots movement to send the message that we must stop now and face the reality of a truly precarious position us humans have placed our planet in. The future appears to be extremely dire for our planet and all of its’ current and future inhabitants IN Focus is a much bigger edition this month. Our choice to expand this issue to a much larger number of pages is in response to the extensive photographic collections in the Nicholas Price archives that illustrate the different sides and stories of the conservation efforts captured through Nicholas’ lens, and how these very small examples are part of the much bigger picture we are all capable of creating.

Included in this issue are photographs of some of our client commissions and collaborations. Many of these photographs have never been seen before. It was fitting that we should at least present these to our readers this month, a time when most people’s thoughts are focused on the issue of conservation. Nicholas Price has been commissioned by and has collaborated with many prestigious entities including the National Parks Service, SWBG Conservation Fund, The Audubon Society, University of Miami's Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Nevada and the Public Lands Institute and the Jane Goodall Institute. We hope you are inspired by the different photographs by Nicholas that have been used to help bring awareness and educate the public through each individual project. Interestingly enough, other Earth Day related website also highlights the partnership of the visual arts and global awareness. Nicholas’ very small selection of photographs

presented in this issue is something we are extremely proud of showcasing. In closing, I wanted to include the following quotes about conservation and Earth Day that summarized our thoughts, feelings and passion to be a part of the bigger picture.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. ~Native American Proverb I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. ~Elwyn Brooks White, Essays of E.B. White, 1977 Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time. ~Motto of the Baltimore Grotto, a caving society And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything. ~William Shakespeare Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money. ~Cree Indian Proverb I welcome your thoughts and opinions on this issue and or any other subject by emailing me at NPMedia@live.com

Preservation Not just conservation Shot in 35mm Kodachrome, Kodak and Fuiji film Compiled by Simone Harris, Curated by Nicholas Price

Conservation is the PRESERVATION of wildlife which includes not only animals but all aspects of nature, rivers, trees, flora and fauna.

Most people do not realize that we are in the midst of a mass extinction that is affecting every living thing on this planet. We are losing up to a dozen species of plant and animal every day.

This rate is far faster than when the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago. A stunningly beautiful animal like a tiger captures people's attention so they become more willing to learn about critical conservation issues. Tigers are an important living example of the environmental problems facing the world, which makes them the perfect wildlife ambassadors. Wild tigers are currently on the brink of extinction. Due to rampant habitat destruction and poaching we may be losing a tiger a day. The unique colors of certain tigers attract an even greater amount of public attention. Therefore, Royal white and golden tabby tigers assume a more important role as ambassadors for conservation issues. We have found that after an up-close, uncaged experience with these tigers, people are willing to learn about the increasing global issues and possible solutions to save our planet's biodiversity. Many tiger conservation programs have focused their funding on the five remaining subspecies of tigers: Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, and Bengal. However, recent genetic evidence suggests that there are only two truly unique subspecies or types of tigers, Sumatran and Bengal. This should allow for a more unified conservation effort for tigers by eliminating the thinking that created a division in which conservation programs were more about National borders than about the Big Cats themselves. Tigers are residents of planet Earth and do not recognize man made boundaries. Present efforts may not be enough to save them, but while they are still here, tigers with their beauty and physical prowess are helping to conserve what biodiversity remains by assisting us as conservation ambassadors. In this month’s issue, the tiger is our cover photo and leads us in to the following photo essay of the stunning wildlife photography by Nicholas Price, who over the course of his career has had the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some amazing animals. The following is just a very small example of the majestic creatures that grace the planet earth and who are now endangered or at risk as a result of the destructive acts made in the name of progress by mankind. 12

COMMISSION SHOWCASE UNLV’S PUBLIC LANDS INSTITUTE SOUTHERN NEVADA RESIDENTS GET „WRAPPED UP‟ IN THE GET OUTDOORS NEVADA MESSAGE THROUGH NICHOLAS PRICE PHOTOGRAPHY Photographs courtesy of the Public Lands Institute

Partnerships with organizations as well as select clients allow Nicholas Price to not only create beautiful and unique photographs but also allows Nicholas Price Enterprises the opportunity to illustrate how valuable a commission or collaboration goes beyond just a photograph. One such example is in the areas of education combined with marketing and business development to not only just help the story documented but to also get a return on the investment of a Nicholas Price commission in a particular exercise. Normally this type of ROI’s are accomplished through retail sales, marketing campaigns, exhibitions and events of Nicholas’ work. A successful partnership with UNLV /Public Lands Institute is one such accomplishment we are proud to showcase. Images of Southern Nevada’s most scenic and visited public lands travelled throughout the streets of the Las Vegas Valley encouraging residents to “volunteer and make the land their own.” In 2008 the Southern Nevada Interagency Volunteer Program, Get Outdoors Nevada, initiated a new effort to reach a broader audience of potential volunteers for public lands.

Partnerships with Nature and Nicholas A. Price Three 40‐foot buses were wrapped with photographic images by Nicholas A. Price, master fine art photographer, with the copy asking residents to visit online to volunteer for projects on Southern Nevada public lands. The images are of Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, and Mount Charleston. The buses cover all areas of the general market in Las Vegas, including Henderson, Summerlin, North Las Vegas, and Boulder City. They are part of the Citizens Area Transit fleet of the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada.

���People were calling and emailing our offices, “We‟ve seen the bus!” And then they would tell us how the photos looked so real they could almost feel themselves stepping into the lake in Lake Mead or climb the mountains of Red Rock – people were inspired, it was great!” LaNelda Rolley, Marketing Communications Specialist for UNLV/PLI The three‐month bus wrap project was the final component of a media campaign to garner the most extensive public exposure for the Get Outdoors Nevada program since its inception. The goals of the media campaign were to increase public awareness of the program, promote volunteerism for public lands, provide the foundation for future volunteer recruitment, and fill the need for operational volunteers at the four federal land management agencies. Get Outdoors Nevada is funded by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act and managed by the Public Lands Institute on behalf of the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership, which is comprised of the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Forest Service.

Partnerships with Nature and Nicholas A. Price

PLI Recognized for its Service and Commitment to the Public Lands Community For more than five years, the UNLV Public Lands Institute (PLI) has been working behind the scenes and at the grassroots level within the public lands community of Southern Nevada. That work has built a strong foundation, so strong in fact that now PLI, its staff, partners and many of its projects are being recognized nationally for its effective work locally in public land management and stewardship. PLI specializes in education, research, geographic information systems/database management, and civic engagement projects related to public lands. The institute was established in 2005 to work in collaboration with federal, state, and non-profit partners to create new knowledge, advance technology, improve education, and engage the community to enhance public lands management and stewardship. One of the PLI-managed projects, the Clark County Cultural Site Stewardship program, was honored recently when Mrs. Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States, designated it as one of the nation’s newest Preserve America Stewards for its successful use of volunteer time and commitment to care for Nevada’s historic heritage. The site stewardship program is a project of the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership, which is comprised of the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and U.S. Forest Service.

One of the PLI-managed projects, the Clark County Cultural Site Stewardship program, was honored recently when Mrs. Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States, designated it as one of the nation‟s newest Preserve America Stewards for its successful use of volunteer time and commitment to care for Nevada‟s historic heritage.

PLI also has been recognized for its work by the Association of Partners for Public Lands (APPL), a not-for-profit organization that works to engage the public in caring for our nation's natural and cultural resources. PLI received two honorable mentions in the Children’s Media category for The Story of Gill and La Invasión del Basurón (The Invasion of Trashor) in APPL’s 2010 Media and Partnership Award competition. APPL also awarded a Certificate of Achievement to PLI for its five years of exemplary service to the public lands community. In providing the award to PLI, APPL Executive Director Donna Asbury noted that “the quality and caliber of PLI’s collective work is truly impressive and inspiring.” Other awards received over the past five years include:    

Southern Nevada Interagency Volunteer Program recognized with two consecutive National Take Pride in America Awards in the Federal Program category (2005 and 2006). Clark County Cultural Site Stewardship Program recognized with Department of the Interior Cooperative Conservation Service Award (2007). Take Pride in America in Southern Nevada Program recognized with National Take Pride in America Award for best state program (2008). Historic Walking Box Ranch listed on the National Register of Historic Places (2009).

“We are honored by the awards and humbled by the support we have,” said Peg Rees, PLI executive director. “Our staff, volunteers and partners put their hearts, minds, and hands in action. They are extremely committed to our public lands and work diligently toward the protection and responsible use of natural and cultural resources in Southern Nevada.” More information about the Public Lands Institute is available at publiclands.unlv.edu.
