"I am happiest at sea and living my dreams working as an expedition guide"

Elizabeth Robinson

Waterproof Guide

Elizabeth was born and raised in Minnesota, a state in the middle north of the US. Minnesota is known for having over 10,000 lakes and nature around every corner, something she took full advantage of while growing up. Before the age of eighteen, Elizabeth travelled to all fifty US states and became a Junior Park Ranger at over thirty National Parks.

She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Mammalogy, accompanied by additional certificates in Psychology, English Writing and Environmental Studies. Recently, she graduated from the University of Bristol (UK) with a Master of Science degree in Global Wildlife Health and Conservation. Her dissertation focused on cetacean conservation and understanding how policy is integrated within conservation efforts.

Elizabeth has lived and studied whales in many places such as Hawaii, British Columbia, Alaska, and Wales. She has previously worked as an orca kayak guide, a snorkel guide in Hawaii, a wildlife documentary co-producer, and a marine mammal researcher. She has spent the last eight years studying species such as orcas, humpback whales, right whales, porpoises, and pinnipeds. She is passionate about cetacean conservation, specifically endangered species. Elizabeth currently calls both the US and the UK home and is happiest at sea.
