Jenny Wong - Canadian Geographic Ambassador

Jenny Wong

Canadian Geographic Ambassador

Jenny Wong is a visual storyteller who specializes in wild places and wild creatures, with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry.

Having backpacked around the world and travelled to all continents except Australia, Jenny is well versed and adaptable in various cultural etiquettes.

Jenny strives to understand the world through science and communicate it through the visual and emotional art of storytelling. Conservation is without a doubt the underlying theme in her work, and she is currently exploring the intersection of climate change in the Canadian high Arctic.

Photography was not something she chose, but rather something that happened organically. Starting as a paperweight in her travel bag, it became the trusted companion that she shared all her experiences and stories with. Camera in hand, Jenny specializes in adventure, travel, wildlife, and commercial photography. Currently, her passion lies in using her craft to spread awareness about the front and last lines of climate change.

Jenny is an honoured Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
