Guest Lecturer
Damon Ramsey

Damon Ramsey (that's me) is hired out through Ecosystem Guides as a guest lecturer, professional speaker, and destination speaker. I have talked to university classes, in-the-field biology college groups, zoo groups, onboard expedition vessels, and on large cruise ships.

The presentations can be from 20-50 minutes long, and the subject can be more scientific or less, depending on the audience. I try to present the subjects in an entertaining and lively way, with lots of humour; be aware there may be audience participation... I have turned previous audience members into waves, nesting birds, wombats or barnacles!  I avoid using rows and rows of text, so the presentations are more image based. For the nature & wildlife talks, I generally only use my own images, so there are no copyright issues, and the talks have largely been developed in conjunction with my books in the  “Ecosystem Guides” series.

I must be giving a serious lecture - I am wearing long pants!

The lecture include a range of destination and natural history subjects, click here for a list of lectures.

An example of a talk (an edited version with just photographs) is here.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? One of the first expeditions I am booked to work on is the NZ sub-Antarctics with Silversea Expeditions and Australia with Coral Expeditions. And here is a shortened version of one of my lectures in a warmer part of the world.
