By team we mean one animal-obsessed adventurer, and by we I mean myself, Ali Wunderman: wildlife journalist, pretend foodie, and naturalist.


Ali Wunderman is the founder of The Naturalist, creator of all written, video, and photographic content. Her educational background is in animal science, veterinary medicine, and linguistics, but her entire life has been characterized by an intense fascination with the natural world, in particular its animals. Her mom never fails to mention how Ali dressed as a bat for multiple Halloweens in a row, and a school picture day or two (or three) in between.
