Jonathan Green studied biology and geology in his native England where he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Science, Geology, and Geography from North London University. After growing up in the UK, he lived in France and Spain for four years before joining the Naturalist Guides course in the Galapagos in 1988. Since then, Jonathan has resided in South America, working as a naturalist, photographer, and diver. “One of my life’s goals was always to work in a field that would allow me to travel and explore. I’m happiest when out in the elements, even at home out in the garden, and I hope to pass on to my children the love of nature that I got from my parents.” Jonathan is a widely published photographer of both land and underwater photography whose work has appeared in BBC Wildlife and Royal Geographical magazines. He was a finalist as Royal Geographical’s Photographer of the Year in 2000, Bronze Medalist in the Hasselblad World Circuit in 2000, and a Finalist Digital Photographer of the Year in 2010. His photography has been exhibited at the Natural History Museum of London, Olympia Stadium, London, and assorted venues around the world, and his underwater video was used in the Lucas Productions documentary Realm of the Giant Sharks. Jonathan is the author of Galapagos: Ocean, Earth, Wind & Fire, a coffee table book of his Galapagos photos and text. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Explorer’s Club of New York. Jonathan was Technical Director of the Galapagos Whale Shark Project in 2011/12 and is a Consulting Scientist, Charles Darwin Foundation/Station, 2012/13. He is fluent in English, French, and Spanish.
