Justin Taus is a freelance multimedia journalist that is based in Quebec and who has been focusing his work on science and conservation-related issues at home and abroad since 2014. He holds degrees in Journalism and in Education, both from Concordia University in Montreal.
Over the years Justin's work has been published by several media outlets, including Outdoor Photographer Magazine, VICE and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). He has also collaborated with several conservation, research and education non-profit organizations, like the Wildlife Conservation Society, the International League of Conservation Photographers, Wildtracks Belize and the Mingan Island Cetacean Study. Justin’s current long-term project consists of photographing life at the Fauna Foundation, a Canadian sanctuary for chimpanzees that were rescued from the biomedical research and entertainment industries, as well as the wildlife at the Foundation’s private nature conservancy. He is also a contributing photographer for Québec Oiseaux, North America’s only French-language ornithology magazine.
Justin firmly believes in the power of photojournalism and education to create change and hopes that his work will inspire others to understand, appreciate, respect and protect our planet's biodiversity.
