Jonathan R. Green graduated in his native UK as a Geologist / Geographer but began working with Marine Biology and Marine Conservation shortly after arriving in the Galapagos 30 years ago.
In 2011 he set up the Galapagos Whale Shark Research Project to monitor and study whale sharks in the Galapagos, perhaps the greatest of Ocean mysteries. The research team carried out the first-ever successful Ultrasound and Blood Draw from free-swimming whale sharks in the world, helping to identify the reproductive state. The work of the Project was featured on the recent BBC Blue Planet II series, in Episode 7.
He is an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London for his work in conservation and education.
He has led adventure travel trips and photo expeditions to the Amazon, Antarctica, the Arctic, Central America, Patagonia, Peru, and the Galapagos.
In 2009 he led an expedition to explore the underwater world in Antarctica aboard a 70ft sailboat, filming documentaries for Spanish speaking audiences.
He has published work in Time, Time Life, GEO, BBC Natural History, Oceanographic and Royal Geographical Magazines and is the author of two photography books.
