About Your Host - Geoff Carpentier

Geoff's interest in nature started when he was 13 wandering through the woods near his home in northern Ontario. Educated at the University of Guelph, Ontario, he studied zoology and biological sciences. Recently retired, he worked for over 33 years with the Canadian Ministry of the Environment. He is a widely published author in nature and science magazines, writes a bi-weekly nature column, worked as an interpretive guide in several national parks and recently published his second book. He has travelled the world, visiting approximately 80 countries on all seven continents, where he has shared time with Polar Bears, Amazonian piranhas, observed the private lives of lions, avoided riots in Venezuela, hiked the Andes, camped with Pademelons in Australia, searched for endemics in Colombia and traversed the Northwest Passage. Being an expedition guide he's led trips to Antarctica, Taiwan, Russia, Alaska, Cuba, Borneo, Greenland, the Galapagos, Tanzania, and more. Join Geoff as he shares his knowledge of wild things and places!
