About Ronan Donovan


National Geographic Storytelling Fellow Ronan Donovan was a wildlife biologist before he turned to photography as a way to communicate conservation stories. Over the past five years as a conservation photographer, he has focused on stories surrounding the human experience in relation to our fellow social mammals. His photographs for National Geographic magazine have ranged from revealing the hidden lives of Arctic wolves on Canada’s Ellesmere Island to illustrating the collision between humans and chimpanzees in western Uganda. His latest project was a joint National Geographic magazine and Nat Geo WILD three-part TV series about a family of Arctic wolves living in one of the harshest places on Earth.
