Robin Tapley is the onsite naturalist and wildlife photographer at the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station within Algonquin Park. Driven by curiosity and a passion for adventure, Robin seeks to explore the diversity of our natural world and create new ways to share this with others.
During his career as an expedition leader, Robin has guided trips to Antartica, the Galápagos Islands, Mount Everest, New Zealand, Patagonia, and Mongolia. Robin’s twin passions are nature and the sharing of his knowledge with those who are eager to learn its mysteries.
A trip to Patagonia may be a once in a lifetime trip, but thanks to Robin, the opportunity for adventure – exists right in our own backyard. As the creator and driving force of his Nature Trails adventure program, Robin introduces small groups of outdoor enthusiasts to the natural beauty and wildlife of Muskoka and Algonquin Park.
As a professional naturalist, Robin is committed to educating the public on the importance of protecting and understanding the fragility of our natural surroundings.
