Dr. Claudia Holgate, Environmentalist

Claudia Holgate is a South African who has always had a love for the outdoors and protecting the environment. In her youth, she spent her time bird ringing (banding), and travelling the world to compete in fencing. After qualifying for the Olympics in fencing in 1996, she decided to move onto other things, receiving a Master’s Degree in Geography and Environmental Science, and a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education.

She has worked at all levels of government, for the United Nations and as an Environmental Consultant. Claudia is passionate about teaching, which resulted in her working as a lecturer at Monash University, teaching climatology and environmental management and where she is still an adjunct research associate.

Claudia always had a fascination for the polar regions which drew her into the expedition travel world, where she can share her passion for the most beautiful places on the planet. While not on the ship, Claudia is the Environmental Manager for the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators, and she is also an Advanced Life Support (ALS) Paramedic, where she teaches numerous ALS courses.
