An award-winning photographer known globally for his work on the effects of climate change on humans and wildlife is launching an exhibition in north Norfolk.
Ashley Cooper will be at Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Cley Marshes on Wednesday, October 18, to launch his exhibition, and to talk about his new book 'Images from a Warming Planet', from 7.45pm.
Mr Cooper's exhibition will be on display in the Simon Aspinall wildlife education centre from Thursday, October 19 to Wednesday, November 15.
Brendan Joyce, Chief Executive of NWT, said: 'We are privileged to display Ashley Cooper's exhibition at Cley Marshes; a nature reserve that knows the impact of climate change, with storm surges and flooding. The trust is working hard to create a landscape more resilient to a changing climate.'
Mr Cooper, who is a Lake District-based photographer, documented the first-known instance of a polar bear starving to death as a result of climate change.
