Jonathan Bailey is a conservation photographer with a background in cultural resources. As a former member of the Utah Rock Art Research Association’s preservation committee—working primarily on the Molen Reef, San Rafael Swell, Nine Mile Canyon, and Robber’s Roost— and a collaborating party for the defense and proposal of the Bears Ears and Escalante / Grand Staircase National Monuments, Jonathan has had the pleasure of being a voice for sacred places. He has also directed and overseen various conservation projects seeking protections for thousands of tribal heritage sites, numerous federally-listed endangered species, millions of acres of wilderness, and beloved creatures great and small throughout the American Southwest. He is thankful for the opportunities this has given him to listen to stories and new ways of thinking. Working with elders, tribal leaders, politicians ranging from rural commissioners to members of Congress, conservation groups, energy executives, archaeological organizations, ranchers, and individuals from all walks of life, Jonathan has worked with the understanding that listening and collaboration is key to assure the health and integrity of culture, wilderness, and the climate. Born and raised in Emery County, Utah, Jonathan currently lives in Tucson, Arizona.
