Gregg Treinish was named National Geographic “Adventurer of the Year” after completing the first-known trek along the spine of the Andes mountain range - a 7,800-mile expedition!

In 2011, he founded Adventure Scientists, a nonprofit organization that deploys outdoor adventurers to collect high quality scientific data that can amplify and accelerate solutions to environmental and human health issues.

Gregg has been named a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a Grist 50 Fixer, and one of Men’s Journal’s “50 Most Adventurous Men,” among other accolades.

Gregg shares his journey which lead him to become National Geographic’s “Adventurer of the Year”, he talks about his passion for scientific discovery, exploration, and their mission to amplify and accelerate environmental impact.

Adventure Scientists, which he founded, serves scientific partners, by providing them with data they need to solve critical environmental and human health issues from the outdoors, from remote areas and at large scale; and outdoor adventurer volunteers, who want to give back by contributing to game-changing science.
