About Dylan White
Dylan grew up in the big city of Toronto but fell in love with wild places and their creatures long before he could walk. It was clear from his childhood nickname, “Happy Camper,” that Dylan was meant for the outdoors. This lifelong passion for experiencing, conserving and learning about nature has propelled him throughout his career as a biologist, guide and educator.
His professional work as a biologist encompasses 10 years of experience on more than 200 diverse projects for government, First Nation, Inuit, non-profit, private and academic clients. Thousands of field hours and an environmental science degree have given him a sought-after set of skills and knowledge about ecological systems in Canada and around the world.
Dylan is also a wilderness and wildlife guide, a passion that started with canoe trips around Ontario as a teenager. He truly loved life in a canoe and nurturing his wilderness skills, which eventually led him to work as a canoe guide in Algonquin Provincial Park and a whitewater-rafting guide in British Columbia. He then went on to organize his own ambitious expeditions that took him nearly halfway around the globe by bike and by oar.
Combining his guiding and ecology experience to serve as an international nature guide has taken Dylan on incredible journeys to Namibia, South Africa, Greenland, Labrador, the Arctic, Argentina and Antarctica – and there’s always an exciting new tour around the corner!
When he isn’t working, Dylan splits his time between Toronto and Guelph, Ontario, with frequent forays into the bush. Music is the other great passion of his life, and he regularly sings and performs on bass and the piano.
