Danny Edmunds, General Naturalist

In 2003, Danny grew tired of earning a living building databases and living in central London. Since then he’s worked as a photographer, diver, travel writer and boat handler in some of the most undeveloped and remote parts of the world. He's driven Zodiacs in all the oceans on the planet, radio-tracked Spectacled bears in the Ecuadorian Andes, surveyed horse-mussel beds off the Llyn peninsula in North Wales and updated the Bradt Guides to Mozambique and Spitsbergen.

Danny spent 16 months living south of the Antarctic Circle, working as the Boating Officer at Rothera, the British Antarctic Survey base down on the Antarctic Peninsula, and has five seasons of experience working on ships in the Southern Ocean. He is a RYA Powerboat Instructor and holds a UK Commercial Skipper’s licence, although he doesn’t get back to the UK often enough to use it. He is also a BSAC Diving Instructor and has worked in both Wales and the Isles of Scilly on marine monitoring projects. He is based in Shropshire in the UK, a place he loves, despite its lack of a coastline.

He is proud to have one scientific paper to his name, a five-page note on the presence of Seagrass beds in the waters of Gibraltar, which can be summed up in one short sentence: “There aren’t any.”

Danny is scheduled to sail on the following voyage(s) (subject to change):
