Tim Jarvis is an environmental scientist, author, and adventurer committed to finding pragmatic solutions to major environmental issues related to climate change and biodiversity loss. He uses his public speaking engagements, films, and books about his expeditions and sustainability work to promote creative and progressive thinking in these areas.
Tim has undertaken unsupported expeditions to some of the world’s most remote regions, including retracing polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s "double" - sailing a replica James Caird boat 1500km across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island, Antarctica to South Georgia and climbing over South Georgia’s mountainous interior using the same period equipment and technology as Shackleton.
I retraced the 1914 mission of Sir Ernest Shackleton, who went down to the Antarctic with the goal to cross it from one side to the other. As you’re probably aware, everything went wrong.
