Hello – I am a mostly retired research biologist and university prof. This website is for random ramblings and photographs. I live in a small town of Logan Lake in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I am a keen naturalist and have often worked as a lecturer/naturalist in the Antarctic, Arctic (Svalbard, E Greenland, Russia), Russian Far East and Alaska. I grew up and was educated in South Africa (PhD University of Cape Town), but I have lived in Canada for 40 years.
