Geoffrey Carpentier

Geoff’s interest in nature began at 13 years of age when he wandered through the woods and countryside near his Canadian home of Petawawa, Ontario. Since his years at the University of Guelph, where he studied zoology, he has dedicated his life to protecting and studying wild things – be they birds, mammals,insects or plants. After his retirement in 2006 from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Geoff headed off on a new career path where he put his life long studies to work – he became an expedition and interpretive guide. Specializing in both tropical and polar environs, he has travelled the world, visiting over 60 countries on all seven continents. He has led numerous trips to Alaska, Antarctica, Borneo, Cuba, Greenland, Iceland, Russia and Svalbard. A prolific author, Geoff wrote a previous book on mammals, and is widely published in nature magazines and newspapers.
