Dr. Ron Goodlin is known as a conservation-wildlife photographer from Thornhill Ontario Canada. 

After slowing down his career as a Cosmetic Dentist, he has spent much of his time travelling the world to photograph wildlife that is in danger of extinct from the perils of mankind.

“My photographic vision is to create natural but artistic images that will be engaging, and appeal to the general public,  thus helping to bring the story of these endangered animals and perils to our natural landscape, to the forefront, creating awareness the effects of climate change, pollution, urban sprawl poaching and industrialization.”

Ron hopes to institute a positive change to our world through his photography.
