Peter Puleston


In November of 1978 when Peter made his first expedition to the Antarctic as a naturalist aboard the Lindblad Explorer, an unquenchable passion for the Earth's polar regions was born. Since then, he has participated in over 50 such excursions south to the Antarctic Peninsula and Ross Sea side of the great white continent. Peter has spent an equal number of seasons during the northern summers, exploring high Arctic environs. Those summers included the first traverse of the Northwest Passage by an expedition cruising vessel in 1984, many expeditions among the ice bears of Arctic Norway's Svalbard archipelago, extensive travel through Canada's North and also Greenland.

Prior to joining the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic team of naturalists, Peter's lifelong interest in the natural sciences led him on several ornithological field expeditions into Central America and the Caribbean with the American Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institution. He also spent two years excavating and studying the ecology surrounding the ancient Mayan site of Tikal, Guatemala with the University of Pennsylvania.

When not sailing the world's oceans, Pete operates his 600-acre farm in New Brunswick, Canada.
