Our Guides & Staff

No matter which tour you choose, you will be accompanied by one of our outstanding guides. Our guides are experienced naturalists with a shared passion for the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. As part of Teton Science Schools, Wildlife Expeditions believes in connecting visitors to this special ecosystem through education. Our guides will share their knowledge on local ecology, history, biology and botany and welcome any questions you may have about the area. All of our guides are experts at locating wild animals and know where to search for animals. Wildlife sightings vary from tour to tour, but we guarantee you will learn something new!
