A highlight from the KWF annual meeting

Of the many well-attended events at the April 8 KWF annual meeting at Acorn’s Resort on Lake Milford, a highlight was the photographic presentation of Noppadol Paothong, staff photographer at the Missouri Department of Conservation who focuses on rare and endangered species.

Known for his 204-page hardbound book, Save the Last Dance – A Story of North American Grassland Grouse that features seven grouse species whose populations are diminishing across the prairies and plains of America – and one species that has already lost its battle for survival, he showed photographs from other projects as well as some from his upcoming publication on the Sage-Grouse. The largest grouse in North America, this bird populates the western United States and southern Canada. Its current population is less than 10 percent of that in the past.Save dance
