I think we should work together.

My name is Don Enright. I’m a freelance interpretive planner and visitor experience advisor: I work collaboratively with parks, historic sites, museums, aquariums and other organizations to help bring their stories to life.

Here’s what I do:

  • Interpretive planning
  • Exhibit pre-design and content development
  • Interpretive writing
  • Market segmentation and analysis
  • Visitor experience evaluation
  • Program development and scriptwriting
  • Training and professional development for interpreters

I’m also a passionate naturalist, writer and photographer, and I make a wicked cup of Turkish coffee.

    My husband and I just returned from our Alaska cruise and consider ourselves very fortunate to have heard your excellent presentations on Whales and Dolphins. Also your color commentary on the glaciers was wonderful, we enjoyed every minute, you added a whole new element to our holiday. Thank you so much! Cherie

    During our Alaskan-cruise on Celebrity Century from 8th to 15th September, we attended several of your “Beyond the podium” presentations and enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed your comments at the Hubbard Glacier.
    Your entusiasm and commitment is very catching.
    Thank you.

    Hi Don,

    thanks for your acknowledgment in your story, for the Platypus photo. I appreciate it.
    Thanks also for your link to your website and my photos. I enjoyed reeding the story
    and admired you’re great photography. Well done. What a wonderful way to document
    nature. Thanks again Trevira1

    I’m in St Ives, Cornwall right now, visiting from MN, USA. I’ve become fascinated with the seagulls. I looked up seagulls and found you. I’m so happy I did. I’m looking forward to you newsletter. Do seagulls just ride the air currents for fun – looks like that’s what they are doing.

  5. Hi Don,
    I did a search on seagulls and found your website. What a delightful surprise. I am a writer, poet and a seagull at heart. I look forward to your e-mails and learning more about our natural creatures and places.

    Your Informed and amusing seagull stories are a joy to read. Thank-you.

  7. I enjoyed reading about your travels in Kerry. I have 2 separate Enright/Enwright women on my paternal line but unfortunately they are back in the late 1700s so proving very difficult to trace exactly. Both were Mary – one married a Denis Cleary (a victualler in Rathkeale, Co Limerick), the other married Thomas Glissan (a bootmaker, also in Rathkeale). I only know of them because the Australian death certificates in the late 1800s of their children John Cleary and his wife Mary Glissan, requires parents be named. We have lots of DNA matches whose Enright ancestors originate in Listowel or Newtonsandes, and now some whose Enrights go back to a John Enright MD in Rathkeale in the late 1700s. I am so looking forward to visiting Ireland again and seeing Kerry and Limerick. On my last visit many years ago I was unaware that we even had Irish ancestry. DNA testing is a wonderful tool for genealogy.

    Hello Don,
    Just fell onto your blog. I am from the Enright clan that settled in the Eastern townships of Quebec, Shefford at the time now known as Bromont Quebec. I am a decendant of John Enright born in Limerick about 1835. He and his brother Michael migrated to Quebec. They were the sons of James Enright and Helene Boyle ( I believe ) that is pretty much were my research has become stuck. Nice to find other Enright’s. Thank you

  9. Hey Don — once again an interesting piece on the AI and how it will effect our field. I noticed you focused on one of the pieces of life — the salamander that you really like. But what if the software was asked a bigger picture question like… “Please explain how sunlight energy is essential for all living things on Earth in 150 words or less.”

    Would the result be more or less useful to folks. Let me know what turns up and thanks again for your posts.
