About Bob Gilmore, Polar Guide and Interpreter
Bob (Robert) was born in Chicago, Illinois in the United States, but didn’t stay there long. Ever since he could crawl he was drawn to the natural world. Shortly after graduating university with a degree in Forestry, he headed west and never looked back. He initially spent his summers as the US Forest Service’s Lead Wilderness Ranger on the north face of Mount Hood in Oregon, while his “winters” were spent at McMurdo Station in Antarctica working for the US Antarctic Program (USAP).
