Puma Diaries is conceived of, and mostly written by, Dave Santillo.
Traveler, seeker, environmental scientist, father of three, tree hugger, adventure seeker, music lover & dreamer.
I worked as an Environmental Consultant for 25 years, and was co-founder and owner of a firm for 15 years. I worked with some great people over the years, & learned alot about how the world works. I did a surplus of schooling to enable me to do this, including a PhD in Environmental & Forest Biology.
Now I write, volunteer, work for environmental causes…and continue to learn more and have my eyes opened more through travel, which may be to Tierra del Fuego, or to my backyard in Maine.
If you like what I´m trying to do here, and would like to contribute a story, please email me.

We’re planning a canoe trip to Labrador this summer – a variation on the one you describe. We’d love to talk with you. What is the best way to connect with you? Do you live in Maine? We are getting together in Portland Feb. 28 to look at maps and make plans. You would be an honored guest if you came. Let us know if you have time to meet or just talk by phone.
Hi Lee, I’ll be around, and I will check with my friend Arne, who is the architect of our three Lab canoe trips. We LOVE to look at the maps, and have a ridiculous number for up there. Contact me on my email at email@example.com
