Chris Harbard has travelled the world in search of birds, from his first trip abroad to Austria to far flung places like Antarctica, Greenland, Saudi Arabia (to monitor the effects of the Gulf War on birds), South Africa (to help penguins following the Treasure oil spill), Chile and Japan. He is a well-known British ornithologist and conservationist who lives in Cambridgeshire.
After 24 years working with the world’s largest bird conservation organisation, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, Chris moved to the Austrian optics company Swarovski and managed their birdwatching website for several years. He is now a freelance author, broadcaster and lecturer. Chris writes for Birdwatch magazine and also manages its website, and is a regular contributor to the BBC’s natural history radio output. Additionally, he edits the Birdwatchers' Guides series of books and serves on the council of the Ornithological Society of the Middle East. He has worked as a naturalist lecturer on board ships for four years in the Arctic, Antarctic, North Atlantic and North Pacific, and has also led birdwatching trips to France and Spain. Although his main area of interest is birds, especially seabirds, Chris also enjoys a range of other wildlife such as butterflies, dragonflies and plants.
|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.
