Welcome to my website! I’m Eli Sooker, a writer, conservationist and wildlife photographer with a passion for traveling and the great outdoors. I come from New Zealand, currently live in Japan, and have visited countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific and recently Africa.
My personal mission is to connect people and nature back together again. Also, to re-connect people to ourselves and to each other.
One way I’m attempting to achieve this is by sharing my experiences with nature and people from across the world, via this blog, various publications (see below) and my social media accounts.
I’m also working full-time as a wildlife conservationist and nature tour guide currently. However, writing is an important way for me to communicate and I’m open to doing more freelance work in addition to what I’ve already done.
I will be looking to do more when the right time comes, so if you are interested in contacting me about this please fill in the form at the bottom of this page.
