Most of us know so little about Canada's Arctic region, but Danny Catt, ecologist, teacher, world traveler, and internationally published photographer, took Ladner Rotarians on a visit there through his photography and knowledge from visits over the years.
Danny worked for many years as a Park Naturalist and planner in Kootenay National Park in the Canadian Rockies, during his 13-year career with Parks Canada. He has taught at three universities in eastern Indonesia for the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and more recently at the post-secondary level over 22 years. He is now head of BC Institute of Technolgy's Fish, Wildlife, and Recreation program.
When not teaching, Danny works as a biologist and photographer on expedition ships in the Arctic and sailboats on the Pacific coast, and as guide for small groups on specialized itineraries, and lectures on cruise ships all over the world. 
Danny has a passion for travel and has explored and photographed the people, landscapes, and wildlife of close to one hundred countries. His photographs have been published in Canada and abroad with credits including the New York Daily News and Globe and Mail as well as Chinese Geographic, Macleans, and TIME magazines. Danny is a past Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar attending the African School of Game Management in Tanzania. He was also a member of Rotary Group Study Exchange Team to India.
