Kara Weller, Expedition Leader and Biologist

Kara Weller has always had a passion for travel and for the biology of the natural world. Growing up in Alaska, she first became interested in wildlife when bears and moose constantly visited the woods next to her house. Kara has earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in wildlife biology, with research experiences that range from studying whales in the Bering Sea to mouflon sheep in Eastern Europe. She has done research for various Universities in North America and Europe, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and National Park Service, and private organisations such as the Alaska Bird Observatory. Kara has worked extensively in the ecotourism industry as expedition leader and as a lecturer aboard cruises exploring the Arctic, Alaska, British Columbia, eastern Russia, Europe, the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic, South America and the South Pacific as well as Antarctica. Her first trip to the Antarctic was in 1994 and since then has focused her innate passion, and much of her work, on the world’s remote polar regions.
