Dave Snow is a naturalist and educator who first fell in love with the seabirds of the North Atlantic in 1979 while living and working as a researcher on Gull Island, part of the Witless Bay Seabird Sanctuary. He started his own company in 1984 to help protect the seabird sanctuary and the province's many other wildlife resources by demonstrating their economic value to business-oriented politicians.
Dave is an avid whale watcher who has taught in Canada and the U.S. about whales and their environment. Dave frequently writes about Newfoundland, whales, aquaculture, wildlife, history, archaeology, and the environment. Each year Dave leads as many holidays as time permits including the Whale Study week which is featured by World Discovery. Dave is also the project leader of efforts to census the orcas of Newfoundland and Labrador. Dave and his three children Alan, Angela, and Jennifer are all animal lovers who enjoy the whales, wildlife, and great outdoors of Newfoundland and Labrador.
