The Halo Project supports resilient communities by engaging in healthy landscape development within the 55,000 hectares surrounding the Orokonui Ecosanctuary.

Why support the Halo Project?

Giving back to the local community is part of my photographic purpose. It's not just about taking pretty images. It is about helping our world become a better place. This is one of the many ways I can make a difference in my wider circle of influence, get to know the locals, contribute to a regenerative land for our future generations.
