Dave Ireland grew up in Huntsville, Ontario (known as the gateway to Algonquin Park), where he developed an avid sense of curiosity at an early age. Fascinated by the variety of species and ecosystems around him, Dave spent many years exploring and leading backcountry canoe trips through Algonquin Park.

With over 20 years spent researching, teaching, and working to advocate for the discovery and conservation of biodiversity, Dave has dedicated his life to sharing his knowledge about nature. 


I strive to cultivate curiosity and encourage
action towards protecting our natural world.
