June is published by National Geographic, Disney, DK Books, the Museum of Natural History London, and her work appears on many websites and publications internationally. She also won the 2011 National Geographic Expeditions Photo Contest and a trip for two to Galapagos Islands aboard the Nat Geo Endeavor Ship.
