Rab Cummings

Expedition Leader

Born near Seattle, Washington, Rab enjoyed a highly unconventional childhood as the son of a veterinary science professor. He spent his youth paddling canoes through Canada’s hinterlands, deepening his love and understanding of the natural world. After earning a degree in natural resource management from the University of Montana, Rab focused his efforts on natural history education. 

Joyful and curious by nature, Rab has taught field courses in wilderness areas throughout North America including several years as a National Park Service Ranger at Katmai National Park, the world’s most accessible grizzly bear viewing site. He managed a nationwide network of water science educators. Later as the Youth and Education Coordinator for Ducks Unlimited, he connected elite science teachers with DU field biologists to conduct wetland and waterfowl monitoring and education. 
You can expect to learn about birds when you travel with Rab. A lifetime of birding and years of conducting Breeding Bird Surveys for the United States Geological Survey has sharpened his eyes and ears. His experience teaching makes him an enthusiastic guide.
When not on board a ship, he works as a commercial and editorial photographer. He lives with his wife and two sons in Bozeman, Montana.
