Lee was born in the UK but now lives in Canada where he runs 'Lutra Wildlife and Wilderness' with his wife, Lindsay Janes. Both are guides who share a passion for wildlife, wilderness, photography and bringing people to exceptional places. Lee is a professional ecologist, naturalist, photographer and writer with more than 10 years experience of guiding a wide variety of natural history tours all over the world but has a particular passion for the wildlife of the Pacific Coast. Prior to relocating to Canada in 2014, he worked as an environmental educator and ecological consultant in the UK and has extensive experience of working closely with a wide variety of rare and protected species including bats and other small mammals. He is an enthusiastic all round naturalist and a good bird watcher, with a great ear for finding birds in dense cover and a good eye for identifying them. In his talk, Lee will be showing us some of his wildlife highlights from his guiding adventures in Canada and sharing with us some of the important considerations when working up close with some of Canada's iconic species.
