We had four presentations lined up. The first speaker was yours truly, and I presented nature travel in Borneo. I can only hope that attendees sensed the incredible pulse of Borneo’s natural environments and all of their intrinsic interest. Our second speaker was Marty Obbard, Ontario’s leading bear biologist and new Quest leader, who told us of personal field experiences he has had with Black Bears and Polar Bears from his decades-long work with them across Ontario. Next was veteran Quest leader Jean Iron, who regaled us with scenery and wildlife from the Svalbard Archipelago, which features prominently in our new Three Arctic Islands Expedition Cruise. Last but not least was perennial favourite speaker Chris Earley, who told us about his scouting expedition last March in preparation for our new Baja California and the Sea of Cortez expedition in 2019. He is also hosting a webinar on this topic on Tuesday, November 14 at 2:30pm. Click here to register!

We always hope our guests leave with more than they came, and – if I do say so myself – I think there was plenty on offer this time around! I myself feel I gain tremendously from watching my colleagues’ presentation.
The door prizes are always popular and we had a variety of books, gadgets and other travel-related paraphernalia to share.
France was the lucky winner of the Bushnell binoculars!
