My fascination for polar bears started when I was a child, and grew while watching BBC wildlife documentaries about the winter seal hunt, when polar bears need to put on enough fat before the ice melts in order to survive a summer on land with little in the way of food.
As more and more concerns were raised about their survival, linked to the issues of climate change, I thought that my chance for an eye-to-eye encounter was now or never. So it was with excitement that I set off for Canada, flying to Winnipeg for a night before continuing north to Churchill on… Read on
I’ve always loved being on water, but the kayaking in British Columbia is truly amazing. I was privileged to see not only humpback whales and a pod of orcas cruising past, but also porpoises, dolphins, seals, sealions and deer in the camp itself, and more bald eagles than ever before - as well as enjoying a day trip up Glendale Cove for some of the world’s best grizzly bear watching.
My heart was pounding as I paddled through the narrow channel that led into the choppy waters of a staggeringly beautiful stretch of coastal scenery - Blackfish Sound.

South Australia offers some 440 species of Australian birds, and habitat areas comprise a mix of waterways, wetlands and mudflats, heath and hilly timbered areas, the famous semi-dry mallee, and the deserts. There are several distinct habitat types in South Australia, each with its own complement of endemic avifauna.
There are a number of good wetland sites that always carry a good range of water birds, plus in the summer months they are often loaded with migratory waders. Some of these are north of Adelaide and some south, each warranting separate day trips.
In the north is St. Kilda, Port Gawler and a number… Read on
