The Last Goodbye

Ami Vitale’s journey as a photographer & filmmaker have taken her to over 100 countries where she has witnessed civil unrest & violence, but also surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. She has lived in mud huts & war zones, contracted malaria, & donned a panda suit all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.”

After more than a decade covering conflict, she couldn’t help but notice that the less sensational but equally true stories were often not getting told. Her belief that “you can’t talk about humanity without talking about nature” led her to chronicle her journey from documenting warzones to telling some of the most compelling wildlife &environmental stories of our time, where individuals are making a profound difference in the future of this planet.
