About Jean Knowles
For the past thirty years, Jean has enjoyed providing cultural and natural history interpretation for expedition cruising and small-group educational travel. She has an avid interest in the tightly interwoven relationship between Newfoundland and Labrador's human population, its challenging landscapes, and its wildlife. Jean has worked with both the province's Folk Arts Society—which celebrates its unique cultural heritage—and the Friends of Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve, dedicated to protecting and studying an important breeding seabird colony. In her free time she can be found exploring new roads, bays, and coves—always with camera in hand.
