Court Whelan

Born and raised in Florida, Court spent much of his youth outdoors fostering a strong love and appreciation for nature and wildlife. This fascination led him to attend the University of Florida, where he received his bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degrees in a program termed “Ecotourism Entomology.” Having been the creator of his own major, he was able to design his coursework, research, and teaching to focus on, as he puts it, “conserving the world through nature and educational travel experiences.” Throughout his graduate school career Court also ran a small ecotourism travel company where he planned and led more than 65 expeditions to ecotourism destinations on all seven continents.

Like many others in the Nat Hab team, one of Court's greatest thrills is to help people travel to extraordinary natural areas that make meaningful lifelong impressions on everyone involved. When Court isn’t planning and leading international ecotourism trips, you can find him backpacking on trails in the Lower 48, running around on the soccer pitch, or editing the thousands of photos and videos he’s taken while on a recent adventure.
