Michael Moore (Expedition Leader)
A Chicago native, Mike earned both his B.S. in biology and an M.S. degree in ecology, ethology, and evolution at the University of Illinois. Since then he has spent 10 years conducting research around the Pacific Rim, where he lived in the highlands of New Guinea, logged hundreds of hours beneath its waters working for conservation organizations, and taught field biology courses for the University of PNG.
A love of travel brought Lisa to Zegrahm Expeditions in 1993. Since then, she has held a variety of positions within the company; both in the office and in the field--from Program Manager, to Cruise Director and Expedition Leader, and most recently as Director of Field Staffing responsible for hiring all of our expedition staff. She earned a master's degree in International Studies from the University of Washington. Since joining Zegrahm, she has had the opportunity to visit all seven continents numerous times.
Dr. Shirley Campbell is a social anthropologist and Research Fellow at the Australian National University, with a special interest in the indigenous peoples of Australia, Melanesia, and the Pacific. More than three decades of academic research and university teaching have led to a sound knowledge and understanding of many cultures around the world and the theoretical foundations that human societies share.
Brad was born in Sydney, Australia and has lived for the last 20 years in North Queensland, on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. In 1996 he earned a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in marine biology and zoology at James Cook University, Townsville. With the Great Barrier Reef serving as both playground and laboratory, Brad has developed an intimate knowledge of how complex reef systems work.
Kevin has a background in forestry and is a well-known Western Australian naturalist with more than 40 years experience in the Kimberley. He has been guiding Kimberley coast trips since 1983 and has an in-depth knowledge of the area. His expertise is in flora and fauna, as well as Aboriginal culture, rock art, and European history. For many years, Kevin was an owner/operator of a tour company specializing in natural history tours over much of Australia. He has published numerous original observations on the areas visited, as well as a number of papers, primarily on birds.
Bob was born in New Zealand and has lived in Australia for the past 40 years, working primarily as a professional naturalist, film producer, and wildlife photographer. His love of nature began as he worked in zoos around the world, including his position as Curator of Birds at Cologne Zoo Germany. Besides international documentary awards, Bob has many Australian Government awards for landcare and conservation. In 2000 he received the Australian Centenary Medal for Service to the Environment.
Inspired from a young age by world-traveling grandparents, George developed a love for travel, adventure, and nature - especially pertaining to the sea. He became a certified scuba diver at age 14 and worked many years as a commercial diver, assistant dive instructor, and sailor working on charter vessels. He retired in 2006 from a successful career in computer network security and cryptography and returned to a life of travel and his passion for the sea.
Mike was born on the Isle of Wight, England, and raised just a stone's throw from the once largest passenger ship terminal in the world. From there, his travels have taken him to most countries around the globe, where he has served as cruise director and expedition staff on both small and large luxury vessels. Mike's recreational scuba diving unintentionally led him to a career as a deep-sea commercial diver. He has dived in almost all of the world's seas. After ten years he left commercial diving to captain his own charter boat along the inland waters of British Columbia.
Rich first became enthralled by the wonders of the natural world around the tide pools and forests of his native New York. Since then, he has embarked on a career in conservation biology that has ranged from teaching science and environmental awareness to teenagers from Los Angeles, to traveling the coast and river deltas of Alaska’s North Slope by Zodiac to reach remote wetlands where he monitored loon nests.
Born in New Zealand and has been a birder since childhood. In 2005 he completed a goal he had had from a young age, with the conclusion of his Ph.D., studying the breeding biology of Australasian gannets in New Zealand. This further heightened his interest in seabirds, and in 2003, along with Sav Saville, he rediscovered the “extinct” New Zealand storm-petrel, a bird known previously from only three museum specimens collected during the 1800s. With support from National Geographic, he led a team conducting further research on this enigmatic seabird.
