Visitors will learn a lot and have fun.
I've been a wildlife biologist for the past 25 years, a Registered Professional Biologist for 13 years and considered an expert on birds in British Columbia.
My love for natural history began early (1970) and as a teen had participated on numerous bird inventory projects. Enthusiastically sharing my passion with others, I was given the VNHS (Nature Vancouver) Garibaldi Award for outstanding service in 1993.
I'm a provincially recognized wildlife specialist on birds and have been used as an expert witness for all Species at Risk in the Lower Mainland, British Columbia. My expertise has often used by various levels of government and the private sector, including Canadian Wildlife Service, Transport Canada, Ministry of Environment, BC Conservation Data Centre, regional districts, and non-government conservation organizations (e.g. The Nature Trust, The Land Conservancy), and several consulting companies.
I enjoy passing my knowledge to others and have led over 140 bird watching field trips both locally and abroad for many natural history groups; organized and conducted ornithology workshops for non-government and government agencies; and taught courses on identification, biology and behavior of birds at Capilano College, for the Vancouver School Board and Vancouver Community College.
In 2010 I created Satipo Tours and now lead birding trips worldwide.
