If you read science, environment, adventure travel or outdoor editorial, you’ve read Leslie Anthony. One of the most prolific outdoor writers of our time and a past editor at SkiTrax, explore, Powder, Bike, SBC Skier, WB and Mountain Life Annual, his work appears yearly in a range of global magazines in several languages. In Canada you’ll find his features populating titles like Canadian Geographic, British Columbia, Forecast and the Mountain Life family of magazines, as well as PIQUE Newsmagazine in his hometown of Whistler, B.C.
Whether it’s a ski trip to Arctic Norway or a look at illegal wildlife trafficking, one thing infuses all of Leslie’s work—an informed climate and biodiversity lens. This focus started as a nature-mad kid growing up in Ontario, led him through a PhD in Evolutionary Ecology, and continues today in his biological research, consulting and outdoor travel writing. With literally no topic unconnected to climate, Leslie enjoys digging into every opportunity to educate and inform, including film collaboraions and the several books he has authored.
