Jonathan R. Green is a sciences graduate of the University of North London. He has worked for nearly three decades in the Galapagos Islands and has several thousand dives in the surrounding waters. An early fascination with whale sharks led to the founding of the Galapagos Whale Shark Project with a view to better understanding the part Galapagos plays in their life cycle.
He is an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London and when not in the Galapagos works on expedition vessels in the Polar Regions. He also teaches photography workshops in destinations around the world and has won several international awards.
