Ecuador and the Galápagos Expedition:
Meet Our Experts
National Geographic grantee and ecologist Kevin McLean can often be found high up in forest canopies, studying some of the world’s least-known wildlife. Kevin combines camera trapping and GPS technologies with field science to study wildlife living in tropical treetops. As he collects his scientific data, he writes stories, takes photos, and creates videos to provide a view of his life as a researcher and the interesting species he encounters. Kevin is a Research Fellow at the University of California Davis, and recently traveled to Malaysian Borneo and the Ecuadorian Amazon as a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling fellow, surveying canopy wildlife in two of the most biodiverse areas of the world. Kevin will join both departures of the Ecuador and the Galapagos expedition in Mindo and Cotopaxi.
