Mike Gunter, Jr.

A veteran traveler with ecotourism experience on all seven continents, Mike Gunter Jr. is a Cornell Distinguished Faculty member and Arthur Vining Davis Fellow at Rollins College where he serves as Professor and Chair of the Political Science department and Director of International Affairs in the Holt School. Tales of an Ecotourist showcases travel, from the hot and humid Amazon jungle to the frozen but dry Antarctic, as a simple yet spellbinding lens to better understand the complex issue of climate change. Using both keen humor and memorable anecdotes, while weaving respected scientific studies along the way, the work highlights five famous eco-destinations and fleshes out much-needed personal context to perhaps society’s greatest threat of all. Dr. Gunter’s previous book is Building the Next Ark: How NGOs Work to Protect Biodiversity.
