Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness

Jul 24, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


We woke up to the news that today is our expedition leader’s father’s birthday. We hear he’s an ardent follower of his son’s travels and a diligent reader of the Daily Expedition Reports. So a very happy birthday to him! The sun was shining, and flip-flops were out on deck as we passed through the terminal moraine of Tracy Arm Fjord. Loading into our expedition landing crafts, we took full advantage of the sunshine and used the face of South Sawyer Glacier to cool off. And just when we started to get the slightest bit chilly, some friendly Vikings sailed over with gifts of hot chocolate!

Kim Nesbitt

Naturalist/Expedition Diver

Kim moved around a lot growing up, spending time in Virginia, New Hampshire, and South Carolina before choosing to call Denver home. She fell in love with travel at an early age—visiting to all seven continents by age 24—and the outdoor culture of Colorado only fueled her love for nature. While completing her bachelor’s degree in biology and cognitive neuroscience at the University of Denver, she spent time living and conducting environmental research in Zanzibar, Tanzania, where her work studying groupers at a world-renowned marine protected area was later published. She earned her M.B.A. from both the University of Denver and Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, where she conducted research on sustainable tourism that will be used in the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Her combination of business and natural science experience has allowed her to consult with the United Nations Foundation, publish field guides, conduct genetics research, and develop university study abroad programs.
