Sally Vogel has been a lifelong naturalist with a love of everything wild. She was introduced to snorkeling on her first trip to the Galapagos and became passionate about life underwater as well as that above. She has a degree in Botany from Pomona College and has taken many post-graduate courses in macro-biology subjects. She spent her working years as a teacher and in retirement continues working as an activist, supporter and organizer for environmental causes. She loves photographing subjects both above and underwater, and has concentrated on photographing and identifying fish species (but not to the exclusion of anything else). She is currently involved in the Pacific Northwest Bumblebee Survey: a citizen science project under the auspices of Xerxes. She also loves hiking and playing her recorder.
