Tim Jarvis


Tim Jarvis is a world renowned British/Australian environmental scientist and polar explorer. He undertakes epic adventures to the world’s most remote areas to further awareness of and discussions on sustainability and climate change.

In 2013 Tim tested his remarkable knowledge and expedition experience on an extremely challenging expedition nobody had previously managed. He successfully retraced Sir Ernest Shackleton’s epic rescue mission across the Southern Ocean, from Elephant Island to South Georgia, before crossing a perilous mountain range to safety. Tim and his team completed it in a replica of Shackleton’s lifeboat, using period equipment and clothing. He wrote Shackleton’s Epic as a record of this trip.

Shackleton's Epic, Tim JarvisPrevious trips include unsupported expeditions across both poles and Australia’s largest desert, and a retracing of the polar journey of Sir Douglas Mawson. Tim is now planning his next project that involves a series of climbs up the highest mountain peaks at the equator, to raise both awareness of and action on global warming.

Tim uses his two decades of polar travel and 20 years experience as an environmental scientist to inform the talks he delivers, regularly presenting on leadership, teamwork, and goal setting. In 2010 he was conferred a Member of the Order of Australia for services to the environment and exploration and in 2014 was announced as WWF’s global ambassador for Australia.
