Lynn Fowler

Expedition Leader

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, and one of seven children, Lynn grew up in various university towns where her father was a professor of physics. Lynn obtained her B.A. in biology from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, followed by a master’s degree in zoology from the University of Florida, which encompassed a study of marine turtles in Costa Rica. She arrived in Galápagos in 1978 and became one of the first female naturalist guides working for the Galápagos National Park.

Lynn completed a doctorate (also at the University of Florida) in 1983, based on her research of the giant tortoises of Alcedo Volcano on Isabela Island, where she spent a year and a half living on the rim of the crater collecting data. She then lived in the Ecuadorian Amazon basin and continued to do wildlife research under a grant from the National Geographic Society.

Lynn began working for Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic in Baja California in 1987. When the company began a regular Galápagos program in 1990, she became an expedition leader on these islands. Lynn has two children, Melina and Elio who love this magical archipelago as much as she does!

In November 2007 Lynn was elected to the Charles Darwin Foundation’s General Assembly. On the National Geographic Islander Lynn coordinates scientific research and data collection with the naturalists on cetaceans and sea turtles in Galápagos.
