Rob Kaye was born and raised in the town of Jasper, Alberta, in Jasper National Park. Fascinated with nature and entranced by the Rocky Mountains from an early age, he learned the ways of wildlife and the wilderness. Rob’s early outdoor adventures led to a lifelong passion to protect the natural environment. Rob worked with the Canadian Wildlife Service for three years before realizing his dream of becoming a park warden with Parks Canada. His 33-year career included one year as a park ranger in Australia. Rob specialized in backcountry management and resource conservation. He retired in 2010 and currently lives on Vancouver Island.
