Albert is an animal ecologist in The Netherlands. He wrote his PhD on management of farmland birds. He studied farmland birds and marsh birds in Holland and in Africa, and spent two seasons studying penguins in Antarctica. He consulted on nature management in Central America, Africa, and Asia. For many years he has been lecturing on expedition cruises in the Antarctic, and the Atlantic Ocean, specialising on Atlantic Odysseys, touching South Georgia, Tristan da Cunha, Saint Helena, Ascension, and the Cape Verdes. His favourite is Tristan, where he has been 10 times, first to study the mysterious flightless Moorhen. Albert wrote hundreds of papers in scientific and popular journals, and several book chapters. He wrote five books, in Dutch, on Antarctica, Tristan da Cunha, and birds and nature in general.
|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.
