Tagging jaguars in the Yucatan jungle, leading expeditions in the Northern Territory of Australia, cross-country skiing at the North Pole, and participating in archaeological digs in Cyprus are just days in the office for adventurer Richard Wiese.
A former Explorers Club president, Richard hosts a wealth of experiences as a journalist, scientist and television personality. Most recently, Richard traveled to Ethiopia for the highly acclaimed BBC and Discovery series, “Hottest Place on Earth.” On location, he attempted to extract fragments of DNA from molten lava to find evidence of microbial life. He’s also an accomplished mountaineer, having participated in the largest medical expedition ever conducted on Mt. Everest, achieving the first ascent of an unclimbed peak in the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, and discovering 29 new life forms while doing research on Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Welcome, Richard! Look for his adventures coming soon on the Born Out There blog.
