S.E. ALASKA WILDLIFE SAFARI

After leading 3 consecutive nature tours to Alaska, I collaborated with the
best outfitters and guides I met while “in the country" to put together a
two-week itinerary that maximizes the photography and eliminates much of the
tedious, and costly travel between locations.  Based in the coastal town of
Petersburg in the biologically rich Tongass National Forest, we will have
easy access to bears, bald eagles, humpback whales, seals, icebergs,
glaciers, Sitka black-tailed deer, and old growth forest communities.  This
tour is limited to just five people so sign up now to reserve your place in
this unique Alaskan adventure.

FIELD BIOLOGISTS PLEASE TAKE NOTE
I am always interested in hearing from field biologists who would be
interested in collaborating on photo/text pieces for publication in “Natural
History”, “Smithsonian”, “National Geographic”, “National/International
Wildlife”, and other top natural history publications.
