  • Adrienne Bosworth

    Assistant Expedition Leader

    Adrienne revels in rain and smoothly constructed sentences. Most days, she’d choose a rocky beach over a sandy one, and if possible would survive happily on smoked salmon. Working for Lindblad allows Adrienne unparalleled access to her home waters in Southeast Alaska, while basking in Central American sunshine in the winter months. She finds distinct satisfaction in wrangling expedition logistics both on board and ashore, and many of her most poignant wildlife experiences have been on Lindblad vessels.

  • Alberto Montaudon

    Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

    Alberto fell in love with nature as a young child. Born and raised in Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico, he spent most of his childhood exploring the Chairlel Lagoon and the Tamesi River. Each morning he would patiently wait in his rowboat for sunrise to witness the great groups of migrating birds that would land on the water. His father taught him from a very early age to understand, love, and respect nature. As a result of his upbringing, Alberto became biologist and decided to follow his passion and became a naturalist. At age 21, Alberto began working with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic in Baja California. Since then he has been sharing interests that range from bird biology to undersea exploration to wildlife photography with thousands of guests.

    Alex was born and raised in Northern California, an area more wild and closer to nature (and colder!) than most imagine.
