David Bellamy has been in the teaching profession for the last 30+ years, most of which have been spent at North Toronto Collegiate Institute where he has taught Sciences at the grade 9 and 10 levels, and Biology as well as Earth & Space Science at the grade 11 and 12 levels.  
He has been collecting rocks and minerals off and on since the age of 10 when his aunt gave him a rock collection.The collection contained specimens of quartz, granite, shale, and slate, among other things, 
Thus began a collecting odyssey which has grown into frenzy over the last 25 years, resulting in a sizeable collection of just about anything you can imagine.  He has also been an avid collector of frog figurines for the last several years such that frogs have become his trademark.
He is also an avid traveller.  So far, his travels have been in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, Guatemala, Belize, Mexico, Peru, Costa Rica, Panama, Madagascar, the south-western US, Italy, the Vatican, Iceland and most recently, Cuba. Where he plans to go in the summer of 2017 has yet to be determined.
