Tony has spent many years living and travelling through the length and breadth of Europe, in the course of an extensive career in travel and tourism, including over a year spent in the High Arctic. He has a lifelong interest in ornithology and, in his native New Zealand, is acknowledged as one of the best birders. He was editor of the OSNZ magazine Southern Bird for nine years and council member for six.
Tony is regularly active in various projects, especially involving research and monitoring of waders and seabirds, including a number of significant international expeditions. In his spare time he has recently been involved with predator eradication on a mammal-free island, and publishing on oystercatcher hybridisation. Tony has a MA in French and GradDipSc in History and Philosophy of Science. These days he spends most of his time at sea, as ornithologist/lecturer/zodiac driver on expedition ships (including UK/Europe, the South Pacific, South-east Asia, and the polar regions). He was most recently manager of Educational Travel programmes at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, NZ.
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
