Todd McLeish

natural history writer

Rhode Island-based writer Todd McLeish has been writing about wildlife and environmental issues for more than 20 years. While earning degrees in communications at Ithaca College and Emerson College, he developed a passion for wildlife, natural history and environmental protection. Rather than pursue a biology degree, he immersed himself in the natural world by volunteering to help biologists with their wildlife research and write about these experiences. Todd also works as a science writer and publicist for the University of Rhode Island. Basking with Humpbacks is Todd’s second natural history book. Todd is an expert birder, a popular leader of natural history walks, an in-demand public speaker about endangered species, and a former world joggling champion (juggling while jogging).
