Klamath Basin Refuges photo book by Brett Cole

Klamath Wetlands

One of my biggest projects, the Klamath Basin in California and Oregon (map) is a globally important area for birds. Most of the wetlands have been lost to farming, but there's excellent restoration potential. It's a special place, and one of the most compelling conservation stories in the world. This book is full of beautiful images of wild birds and wetland ecosystems. Learn more about the Klamath refuges and the current conservation status by visiting Oregon Wild.
