Ms. Vera Nieuwenhuis is a professional photographer based in New York. In September/October 2017, Ms. Vera was successful in her application to Photographers Without Borders (PWB) and she spent two weeks with us in Kemaman, Malaysia, to photodocument our river terrapin research, conservation, education and outreach activities.

Upon her return to New York, Ms. Vera was interviewed by her church, and she recalled her experiences while in Malaysia. Read Ms. Vera’s interview with the Old First Reformed Church in Booklyn, New York here:
