He has over 25 years of field experience having worked in wilderness areas throughout much of Africa, Saudi Arabia and the USA. From specialist safari guiding, leading a scorpion collecting expedition for the Smithsonian Institution in the desert of Namibia, to mist-netting birds in central African rainforests, Quinton turned to studying predators in 2003. He completed his Ph.D., “The Ecology of Leopards in the Cederberg Mountains, South Africa” through the University of Bristol, U.K. in 2010 and is considered a leading expert on large carnivores.
