In May I will be hosting a photographic expedition to Svalbard with Rupert Pilkington.
Rupert is a wildlife management specialist and expedition guide with a particular interest in large mammals and the preservation of their wild habitats.
A dedicated conservationist, Rupert has worked with many species including red deer, mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, peregrine falcons, wolves, and bears. He has lectured and taught courses and programs on bear biology, wildlife management and safety, and ecology, for a variety of universities, companies, and vocational study facilities.
He spends part of the summers working as a guide and lecturer for Zegrahm Expeditions in Svalbard, Greenland and the eastern Canadian Arctic and sub-Arctic. He has also done extensive guiding and lecturing work in Alaska, British Columbia, Norway and the Russian Far East, and each autumn, he teaches courses on polar bear biology and conservation at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, at Churchill, Manitoban.
I am personally very excited to be sharing this incredible experience with Rupert and know that he will add immense value to the trip by sharing his experience and in-depth knowledge with our guests!
Here are a few images I have just received from him which shows the amazing white wonderland we will be exploring.[gdl_gallery title=”rupert-svalbard” width=”125″ height=”125″ ]
