Drawn to the last virtually unexplored places of our planet, Geoff travels to New Guinea and Antarctica to study how powerful processes, such as ocean currents and climate change, influence the ecology of sea turtles and emperor penguins. His passion for these animals has pulled him into the realm of conservation, fully aware that here lies one of the biggest challenges of our generation. How do we reconcile the needs of humans with those of our fragile marine ecosystems?
Conservation tourism is a powerful generator of sustainable income to local communities. Through Kalawai Adventure, Geoff brings select groups of travellers on "naturalist's expeditions" to West Papua, Indonesia. Part of the proceeds of these trips are donated to support Papuan conservation projects. You can learn more here.
