Their nonprofit, which Nicklen and Mittermeier co-founded in 2014, has conducted global expeditions studying nearly 800 species, and has made an immeasurable impact on climate education worldwide.

‘This is an incredible opportunity to witness the beauty of nature in an intimate and personal way, to share their important message, and join their mission advocating for greater conservation and environmental awareness’, said Tiffany Benincasa, the Gallery’s curator and owner.
