Nature's Archive by Michael Hawk

Earth is one system, and Nature's Archive explores it all. Nature's Archive focuses on global ecology - especially birds, lizards, and butterflies. But you'll also find lots of mammals, landscapes, insects, weather and more!

Hello, I'm Michael Hawk. Based in California, I've been obsessively photographing and investigating the nature and ecology of everywhere I live and travel. My goal is to share the majesty of nature - even that which is in your own backyard! By helping to spread awareness of the importance of natural systems, I hope people will develop a deeper care for preserving and conserving the world we live in.

I share the natural world through this website, social media, my blog, and my new Nature's Archive Podcast, launching in mid 2020.
