An interesting short TED talk by David Griffin, well worth a watch. Make sure you watch until the end – the Leopard seal story is priceless.

The photo director for National Geographic, David Griffin knows the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we all use photos to tell our stories.

WARNING: There is a couple mof pretty graphic images of some elephants that succumbed to poachers. So if your a little squimish, might want to be prepared.
