Edward Oswald Shebbeare (1884-1964) was a British mountaineer, naturalist and forester.[1] He was a member of the 1924 British Mount Everest expedition and the deputy leader and transport officer of the 1933 expedition. In 1928, he was a founding member of The Himalayan Club. He was chief conservator of wildlife for Malaya and, in 1940, he was the founding president of the Malayan Nature Society.[2]


Without a university degree, Shebbeare joined the Indian Forest Service in 1906, eventually becoming chief conservator of forests for Bengal. He was also particularly active in wildlife conservation, securing legal protection for the Indian rhinoceros.[3]
