Ali Liddle Guide

Ali has lived in both the Falklands and South Georgia, but is currently based on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. She has a passion for the polar regions and has worked on ships in both Antarctica and the Arctic, as well as a few destinations in between.

Ali has been working on cruise ships since 2010 and is a self-confessed 'polar addict' with a deep love of Antarctica and the Arctic; their landscapes, wildlife and the history associated with the regions.

Originally from the UK, Ali spent 15 years living in the Falkland Islands, where she worked as a primary school teacher, initially teaching young children in 'camp', on remote farms and settlements, and then at the school in Stanley. She later pursued her passion for wildlife and environmental and conservation issues by working as an Education Officer for Falklands Conservation, which allowed her to divide her time between classroom teaching, environmental education and conservation.

In 1997 she was lucky enough to spend some time on South Georgia, where she managed the post office and took every opportunity to hike, ski and explore the surrounding peaks and coastline. Of all the places she has been lucky enough to visit, this sub-Antarctic island is her absolute favourite place on the planet and she has published 3 books to date - Plants of the Falkland Islands and 2 children's arts and crafts books inspired by penguins and albatrosses.

Ali is a keen runner, having completed 3 marathons in the Falklands and 2 in the UK, and also enjoys walking, cycling, photography and art.She has a particular interest in natural history, wildlife and flora and enjoys sharing her local knowledge and passion for the Polar Regions.
