Like many people, I love to travel to new places. It is always amazing to see new wildlife, experience other cultures and meet diverse groups of people. Even within the U.S. there are many amazing places to see. To the left are the places that I have been lucky enough to visit and pass some time. Try clicking on the red markers to start learning a little about the places I've been. I also talk about some of these places in more detail in my "Adventure Log."
Below, I've listed some resources for you to get started on your own adventures at home and abroad. You don't have to be a biologist to enjoy all of the beauty that the natural world has to offer. If you are really inspired, you can take the next step and begin to actively participate in the preservation of our world's natural landscapes.
