Chris Darwin

Nature Conservationist


Chris Darwin is a great great grandson of Charles Darwin. He has a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Physical Geography. Two of his expeditions were world firsts, the first Round Britain Windsurf expedition and the World's highest dinner party on top of Peru's highest mountain – an event that was only marred by the wine freezing and two of the guests getting hypothermia during dessert. He has written two books and taken the photographs for three books. He started the first London bicycle rickshaw company, then worked in advertising, following by 20 years as a mountain guide. He financed the creation of the 68,000 hectare Charles Darwin Reserve in Western Australia, he has raised over $1.3 million for charities and is the Ambassador of Bush Heritage Australia. He has never felt greater love that he does for his wife and three children. His big hairy audacious goal in life is to prevent the Global Mass Extinction of Species. Early in life Chris' grandmother gave him some advice, 'If you cannot be first, be peculiar.' As you will see he took this advice seriously. Image: Bush Heritage Australia
