A Bit About Me
I am Kirsty’s big brother and was living in Canada as I saw Tiger Trails (now Wildlife Trails) growing and looking to develop new wildlife destinations. My desire to get involved with Wildlife Trails was not merely down to blood ties however, as Allan and I are very much of one mind when it comes to travel, wildlife, and conservation. For some time now we had been keen to explore wildlife viewing opportunities in Canada. In 2003, year months of planning came to fruition and I undertook a 6 week trip to British Columbia, Manitoba, and the High Arctic in search of all 3 native bear species, also taking in everything from wolves to whales along the way. The trip was a huge success from a wildlife encounters point of view and some of my images were used to help raise money for Polar Bears international.
I now operate in a more part time consultant/advisory role, in developing new off the beaten track destinations in Alaska, Canada and the High Arctic. Although I too have a deep love of India’s wildlife and local people and have visited multiple times; including an epic 1 month road trip through Rajasthan and Gujarat. The last trip was in February 2020 with all the extended family, as we celebrated 20 years of Wildlife Trails. A magical moment for all of us and we feel incredibly blessed to have enjoyed that precious time together, just before the Pandemic unfolded.
