We are a collective of friends, scientists, artists, writers, and concerned citizens exploring the natural world. Wingtrip stands for much but mainly encompasses passion for exploration of the world around us. Not only do we thirst for travel and adventure, but we seek to help enlighten others through our words and images. We’ve only got one planet and much of it is in a desperate way – our goal is to help conservation efforts by inspiring our readers and by sharing our adventures and thoughts. This is done not only through focusing on nature only but also highlighting human involvement and social changes happening and necessary for a better world. If we don’t care of ourselves how can we take care of anything else?
It doesn’t hurt to have some fun along the way as well! There’s so much to see and explore!
Brendan McGarry, Editor and Curator
A graduate of the Evergreen State College with a B.S. in Zoology and Animal Behavior, a life long birder and artist, Brendan aspires to write and photograph his way around the world for a living. He is the main writer, photographer, and manager of the blog. Wingtrip is his brainchild. A Nikon Pro-Staff Birder, Brendan is also a contributor to Seattle’s Capitol Hill Times, Birdnote.org, and lectures on birds and nature. When he isn’t doing the above, he’s likely exploiting yeast in bread making or beer brewing, drawing and painting, or reading a good book.
