This coming Sunday is Earth Day, so this week we’re hosting a #PPGreenEarth challenge! The world’s greatest wonders aren’t man-made — from the Grand Canyon to the Great Barrier Reef. Whether you’re a nature-lover, a conservationist, or an inhabitant of earth; we all have a stake in preserving the planet. How can with travel with a conscience?

For @passionpassport‘s #PPGreenEarth // What touched me the most was the energy of preservation that surrounded Plitvice Lakes National Park. It really felt like a sanctuary that every visitor was respecting. As a photographer, I feel like I had a small role in helping maintain this beauty by capturing it for others to see.
