Professor James Higham

James Higham is a professor with 25 years of research and teaching experience at the University of Otago (New Zealand). His PhD in Geography explored aspects of wilderness management in New Zealand, leading to a research career in environmental management and sustainable development. His research focusses on tourism and sustainability, national parks management, wildlife conservation, the protection of marine mammals, and climate change. He has extensive field-based experience of New Zealand’s national parks and marine protected areas, as well as Antarctica’s Ross Sea Region, including sites such as Scott’s huts as Cape Evans and Hut Point, Shackleton’s hut at Cape Royds, McMurdo Sound and the Trans-Antarctic Mountains. James is active in a range of outdoor sports particularly mountain biking, competing in various adventure races in New Zealand, in part to fund raise for his chosen charity, ‘So They Can’, which funds rural African primary school education.
