Jason Matthews: Project Leader

Jason has been fascinated with arctic exploration since childhood, and has been preparing for these expeditions for the past three decades, as he has worked and traveled throughout Alaska and the northern Rocky Mountains developing his dog-sledding and kayaking skills as an outfitter and guide.

Called an "encyclopedia of sled dog information" by the New York Times, and a "seasoned Naturalist" and "Expert on Alaska" by National Geographic, Jason began his career working in wild places, as a guide in Glacier National Park in the early 1990’s. Now over 20 years later he has worked as a naturalist, environmental educator, cameraman, guide and wildlife researcher in parks throughout the Rocky Mountains and Alaska and as an Outdoor Education Instructor for Montana State University-Bozeman, Outward Bound School, Ely, MN, and the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center (NOROCK -USGS) Bozeman, Montana. Since 2013 he has worked in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as an Expedition Leader and guide for Wild Alaska Travel.

With a focus on wolves, bears, and sled dogs he has worked on several National Geographic assignments over the years. His work has appeared on the National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, Animal Planet, NBC, and in several magazines. Most recently with a National Geographic project searching for Grizzly/ Polar Bear hybrids in Arctic Alaska.

Jason currently divides his time between Montana and Alaska- working in Glacier, Denali, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He lives with his wife, two sons and 90 sled dogs in Montana.
