More about Dave Rein:

Dave Rein has journeyed the globe photographing wildlife naturally in wilderness situations. In addition to his own wild-travel adventures, he has participated in fourteen wildlife research expeditions with Earthwatch, whose tagline is “science in action.”

These research projects included: studies of grizzly bear in Montana and the Yukon; black rhinos in Namibia and Kenya; lions in Kenya; grey whales in British Columbia; wolves in Alberta; giant pandas in China; whooping cranes in Texas; chimpanzees in Uganda; and rainforest wildlife in North Queensland, Australia.

Dave’s photographs have been published in Audubon, Cascades East magazine; Outdoor Photographer; Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s Bugle magazine and calendar; Oregon Natural Desert Association calendars; Texas Natural History book; Hunting Oregon book; Grizzly Bears on the Hunt book; Seeing Red book; and in The Age newspaper in Melbourne, Australia.

Dave is the author of two books about animals he has encountered in the wild: Great Fishermen (about the lives of Brown bears); and, Sleek, Swift, and Splendid (about river otters).

Dave has lived in Bend, Oregon, since 1975. Yep, he still comes home to the Deschutes River after gallivanting around the globe.
