Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor
Max Seigal grew up in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, and spent his early years working at his parent’s veterinary clinic, which sparked his love for animals. At a young age, Max fell in love with conservation and travel. He studied abroad in both Costa Rica and the Bahamas during high school, and went on to graduate summa cum laude from Ohio Wesleyan University with degrees in environmental science, zoology, and economics.
After college, Max spent a year in southern Africa working on various conservation ecology projects, which included tracking rhino and lions, collaring and radio-telemetry tracking wild dogs, and studying mussel larvae off the cost of South Africa, among various other activities. Following his time in Africa, Max went on to receive a Fulbright grant to study sustainable lobster aquaculture in Vietnam. During his time in Southeast Asia, Max traveled extensively in the region, working with a number of conservation organizations to improve the future growth of the fish-farming industries in Vietnam and surrounding countries.
In addition to his career in the sciences, Max is an award-winning wildlife photographer. He leads photo expeditions around the world, from Alaska to Antarctica, which allows him to share his passion for the scientific and photographic splendor of the natural world. Through his years of experience working in the field, Max has developed the understanding and insight to help Lindblad guests improve their photographic skills.
