Wild Norway & Svalbard

Hollywood has produced plenty of doomsday films, usually with a scientist-hero concocting some scheme to prevent an existential disaster from destroying the human race. In reality, our survival is based on something much more elemental: seeds.

The Global Seed Vault on Svalbard is a secure storage facility that holds the largest, most diverse collection of food crop seeds on earth. Located in an abandoned coal mine deep within a mountain beneath the permafrost, the...

I’ve been a nature-lover my whole life, but I began traveling specifically to see animals in the wild back in the early ’90s. Still in my early 20s then, I was fascinated by watching wildlife. My passion grew exponentially as I took up photography and became more adept at spotting hidden animals.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve been blessed to explore over 40 countries on six continents. The one thing most of the places I’ve visited have in common? An opportunity to...

Blog Post

On August 21, the moon will pass in front of the sun and the sky will turn completely dark in the middle of the day. Total solar eclipses like this occur approximately once every 18 months, but they’re usually only visible from less than half a percent of the Earth’s surface. This will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979.

Despite the brevity of this phenomenon, its rarity makes it an experience stargazers do not want to miss....

From Alaska and northern Canada to Greenland and Scandinavia, exploring the Arctic ranks among the world’s greatest adventures. For us, one of the most rewarding aspects was seeing the incredible array of Arctic animals that manage to survive in these harsh landscapes.

Alaska inevitably wows visitors with awe-inspiring scenery, abundant wildlife, and a long, colorful history.

The reviews are in: Michael Moore has another hit on his hands.

We’re not speaking of the documentary filmmaker, but rather the charismatic naturalist who leads Zegrahm expeditions around the world. Moore’s most recent, an Alaskan overland adventure this past July, earned enthusiastic praise, particularly for his skills in directing the cast of thousands...

The setting: somewhere in New Mexico. Oil field waste pits have not been properly netted to protect wildlife from their toxic mixture. Migratory birds, mistaking these holding ponds for water, have become trapped and died. The oil companies are in clear violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but Fish and Wildlife Special Agents need help in building their case. How many birds have been affected? How many species? Are any endangered? Time to call Pepper Trail, bird detective....
