Nature Hotspots in Canada with Author Debbie Olsen
Debbie Olsen collaborated with a small group of nature writers (including our very own Chris Earley) to put together a new book called "150 Nature Hot Spots in Canada: The Best Parks, Conservation Areas and Wild Places." She has visited every province and territory in Canada on her quest! Join our webinar with Debbie to learn more about four special places you should add to the top of your Canada hotspot list:
- Alberta Rockies: Jasper to Banff and beyond
- Churchill, Manitoba: The Polar Bear migration in winter, the Beluga migration in summer and other highlights.
- Canadian Yukon: Aurora viewing, gold panning, historical sites, dog sledding, sour toe cocktails and more.
- Newfoundland: Change Islands, Fogo Island, Miawpukek Annual Powwow and other adventures.
Debbie Olsen is a Globe and Mail bestselling author, an award-winning writer and photographer. Her presentation will be like her new book - filled with beautiful pictures and insider information to inspire you to visit the country we call home.

The Unusual Life of Leopards in India
India is home to 4 of the world’s 5 big cats, one being the graceful yet ferocious Leopard. Leopards in India have long discarded the rulebook of a big cat’s way of life. Join our India-based naturalist, Payal Mehta, for a look at how leopards are such a successful and yet a threatened species in India. This webinar will be as much about this cat as it is about the country itself, as the story of one is incomplete without the other.
Hailing from Mumbai, Payal Mehta was raised a city girl but has always loved the outdoors. She has branched out much beyond her formal training in geology to become well-versed in India’s wonderful wildlife and varied habitats. She is our choice naturalist guide in India and our Quest travellers always delight at her skill in interpreting India’s nature and cultures too.
