Nathaniel Spring (born 1971) is a British conservationist and explorer. He currently works for the Earthwatch Institute in Oxford, United Kingdom, where he is Senior Research Director.[1]

Spring studied marine biology at Cardiff University. Since then he has been involved in a variety of expeditions, many of which are related to his work at Earthwatch. In 2004 he rowed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic[2] and has also raced 550 km across Costa Rica by bike, kayak and on foot.

Most recently, Spring was part of a three-man research expedition to Greenland in 2009. In addition to climbing and exploring the area the team collected plants, contributing to a botanical inventory in East Greenland which was initiated in the 1960s [1]. Several new peaks were recorded, one of which was named after Spring’s paternal grandfather, Kenneth Spring.

Spring lives in Oxfordshire, England.
