Caroline's Tips

Caroline Warburton - Wildlife Expert

I'm Caroline, I am an expert in Scottish wildlife. I love the outdoors, and protecting the environment is close to my heart. My passion all started when I started working on the Isle of Mull as a guide on a whale-watching boat, and it grew from there! I worked in wildlife tourism in Scotland for over a decade so I feel incredibly blessed to have made Scotland's nature and wildlife my day to day occupation. I love nothing better than to go off on a wildlife expedition, I always learn something new!
