Greg McCormack is fascinated by pristine, remote ecosystems and dynamic cultures. He bicycled the entire length of the Americas — 30,000 rugged, adventurous kilometers through 20 countries — from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuala, Argentina. He lived and worked in Peru for one year. His passion for sharing the wonders of the natural world with others has guided his work as a naturalist and educator in developing programs for a plethora of organizations ranging from the Audubon Society to Zegrahm Expeditions. He has been a Ranger in a half dozen National Parks. During his recent five-year stint as a marine educator with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), Greg trained national park managers from the Galapagos in Ecuador, to parks in Colombia, Panama, and Cost Rica on sustainable tourism. He has worked as an Alaskan River Guide, Kayak Expedition Leader, and a Dive Master throughout much of the South Pacific. An avid birder, scuba diver, kayaker and trail runner, he is inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau: "In Wilderness is the Preservation of the World.” He resides in spectacular Monterey in Central California, USA.
