In this episode, we’re sitting down with Jenny Wong, a high-arctic adventure wildlife photographer. Jenny’s story is one of strength and challenge. She comes from a line of brave refugees that escaped from China to Vietnam and then eventually settled in Canada, where Jenny was born and raised. In school, Jenny found her passion in chemistry and biology, back when her camera was only used as a paperweight. But she soon discovered the power of storytelling through visual media and using science to explain the phenomena that she was capturing. Her career was launched and now she’s a highly-respected, wildlife photographer. We dive deep into several topics like how she, a BIPOC woman, entered a white-male-dominated field, the conservation issues currently unfolding in arctic ecosystems, ethical wildlife photography, wild stories from her time in the north, and tips for anyone wanting to follow a similar path.
