Morgan (Mo) Heim is a wildlife photojournalist, filmmaker and adventurer focusing on wildlife-human coexistence. Her goal is to find the beauty, humor and perseverance in the struggle to make the world a better place. She began her career studying fisheries, listening to whales and working on dam removal projects. Now she uses her background in ecology and journalism to tackle subjects such as roadkill, living with cormorants, deer migration and the environmental impacts of drug cartels on forestlands.

She is the founder of Neon Raven Story Labs, a storytelling and strategy platform for conservation, and in 2020 co-launched Her Wild Vision Initiative aimed at raising the voices of diverse women in the craft of conservation visual storytelling.

Morgan is a Senior Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers and National Geographic grantee. Her work has appeared in National Geographic, Audubon, Smithsonian Newsweek, Telluride and Banff Mountain Film Festivals as well as as a finalist in the Jackson Wild Media Awards. She has been recognized in Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the Big Picture Natural World Photo Competitions.

Mo lives in the small coastal town of Astoria, Oregon, where the waves are big, the mountains close, and the weather not nearly as bad as everyone thinks it is.
