Ushuaia, Argentina / Embark Island Sky

Having arrived at the Arakur Hotel & Resort in Ushuaia the day before, and caught up on at least some sleep overnight, we set out this morning to explore Tierra del Fuego National Park. Guided by our ornithologist, Jim Wilson, our birders were first out, keen to find their target species, the Magellanic woodpecker. In this they were...

New Zealand Animals

New Zealand’s remote location has made its wildlife exceptional. The outlying sub-Antarctic islands are amongst the wildest, least disturbed, places on Earth.  In fact, the collection of archipelagos remained unsettled by humans (and other mammals) for so long that its native animals often have characteristics unlike any others on the planet.

Because New Zealand...

The planet’s polar regions, the Arctic and Antarctic, are both remarkably cold, which may explain why people often get them confused. Both are technically cold deserts, with very little precipitation. In both places the winters are frozen and devastatingly dark. Summers are still somewhat frozen (though...

We converged on the city of Papeete from distant reaches of the planet for the same reason: to embark on an expedition to experience the culture, wildlife, and landscapes of the South Pacific. We arrived at the InterContinental Resort, some of us coming early to explore Tahiti on our own. Before meeting as a group for brunch, we took a dip in the pool or...

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...

During the austral summer (October – February), thousands of whales migrate to the waters surrounding Antarctica to feed on a bounty of krill, small shrimp-like creatures that live in large schools. A highlight of any trip to Antarctica is the chance to view these leviathans as they feed, breach, and socialize in the Antarctic’s icy waters. Here are some of the whales you may see.
