Eric’s role as NHA’s Head Naturalist not only allows him to lead a wide range of adventures around the world, but also to play an essential role in improving existing trips and developing new ones. His illustrious career began in Alaska in 1989, where he worked as a field researcher on many of the state’s diverse animal species, including river otters, waterfowl, moose and reindeer. He also served as the Head Naturalist at Kantishna Roadhouse Lodge in Denali National Park. His involvement in many of our North American destinations, including Alaska, British Columbia, Churchill, Canyons and Yosemite, has been integral to their continued success and popularity, and his participation in more exotic adventures, like Bhutan and Japan, will undoubtedly serve to enhance travelers’ experiences in those areas as well. When not guiding for Natural Habitat, he works as a freelance documentary photographer. Eric’s knowledge, compassion and deep love of the natural world have a long and lasting impact on those who travel with him.
