Kit Van Wagner
Inspired by her experiences growing up in Japan, Norway and England, Kit van Wagner has been steadily working her way around the globe, sharing her infatuation with life in the world’s oceans as she goes. Over the years, Kit has worked on several government-funded marine conservation projects and science education initiatives.
Attempting to settle down, Kit worked for over a decade directing science education programs. Most recently she worked with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) developing initiatives to raise awareness about the importance of estuaries, water quality, and coastal climate change impacts. Over the years, Kit has also enjoyed working as a naturalist, lecturer and Zodiac skipper on small expedition ships throughout the South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Alaska, the British Isles, Norway, Russia, Central America and in the Caribbean. This work has given her incredible opportunities to interact with wildlife from spending time with orphaned Orangutans in Borneo, to following basking sharks off the rugged Scottish coast. Kit now works full-time on conservation projects and expedition travel. Onboard, she looks forward to sharing her good humor and infatuation with life in the world’s oceans.
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
