Chris Cutler, General Naturalist

An experienced naturalist and field biologist, Chris began his career from boyhood in the inner city of Chicago where wire-running squirrels and rooftop pigeons were his preferred study subjects. He studied biology at the University of California, and there began several years of investigation on the biogeography, ecology and behaviour of birds and mammals. Among numerous projects, he has worked on developing cost-effective monitoring methods for forest bird communities; conducted baseline studies of threatened species of birds and mammals – using live-trapping, banding, vocal recording and other techniques; and surveyed diverse habitats for native and exotic flora and fauna. He has spent a great deal of time at sea on research cruises investigating the distribution of cetaceans and is an avid photographer.

Chris has worked for several years as a naturalist guide and lecturer on natural history excursions, both on land and on expedition cruise ships.
Whether in the Arctic, the Antarctic, Amazonia, on a South Pacific atoll or even in a vacant lot, Chris seeks out that, which the natural world offers up. Keenly interested in ecology, evolution, and conservation, he is an engaging interpreter of the natural world and a lifelong student of its endless lessons.
