Carlton Ward is a Florida conservation, wildlife, and nature photographer. His work is exhibited worldwide and featured in renowned publications such as National Geographic, Audubon, Smithsonian, Nature Conservancy, and more.

In partnership with the National Geographic Society, Carlton worked with scientists, conservationists, ranchers, veterinarians, and the local indigenous population to capture stunning images and videos of one of the most elusive animals on the planet, the Florida panther, showcased in the book and film documentary Path of the Panther. This project has been his primary focus since 2016, with support and grants from the National Geographic Society and other partners. Carlton and his team manage a network of professional photography and video camera traps throughout critical habitat of the Florida Wildlife Corridor.

  • The genesis of Carlton's photography career
  • Travels in Gabon, Africa
  • The plight of the Florida panther and its endangered status
  • What is the Florida Wildlife Corridor?
  • Why should the world care about the Florida panther?
  • Path of the Panther: the book and documentary film
  • Camera Traps: what are they and how are they used?
