      Mini Bio

      Part-time wilderness guide, part-time conservation consultant, part-time sailor and diver. Full-time nature lover!

      Despite living only ten miles from the southernmost point of mainland Great Britain, Chris doesn’t need an excuse to get up north to the mountains. His favourite spots are the Western Highlands (Torridon and Ardnamurchan), and pretty much all of England’s Lake District. When not guiding, Chris has a small environmental consultancy and works with NGOs such as WWF to tackle the challenge of deforestation in South America and Asia.

      Places to play

      My five favourite places in the world are (probably):

      • The UK (Highlands and Lake District)
      • Patagonia
      • Slovenia
      • Saltwater
      • My allotment

      Not a lot of people know this

      I once shared a urinal with Michael Palin, a dance-floor with Jerry Springer, and talked the President of Ghana to sleep.

      Biggest Adventure Read More

      Probably five months in South America last year (2018) including three months on the epic Carretera Austral – one of the last great undeveloped road routes of the world. An incredible trip through mountains, glaciers, volcanos, landslides, forests, lakes and even deserts.

      I wrote part of The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity Report (the ‘TEEB’ report) which calculated that loss of biodiversity is costing the world $4.5 trillion per year, every year.
