Un poco acerca de nuestros guías
Christopher Di Corrado
Soy un “nerd” de las aves, biólogo y guía de vida silvestre. Soy guía en Ecuador o en la Antártida. Estaré muy contento de estar en tierra firme, ayudarlos a buscar pájaros, y hacer nuevos amigos. Crecí en Ontario, me mudé y viajé por Sudamérica donde aprendí español, ¡y todavía estoy aprendiendo! ¡Espero verlos y practicar español!
Catalina es una bióloga de Colombia que actualmente está cursando su doctorado en la Universidad de British Columbia (UBC). Se mudó a Canadá para completar su maestría en UBC después de adquirir valiosa experiencia en su país natal. Sus intereses de investigación incluyen estudiar la influencia de la agricultura en la biodiversidad de aves en los trópicos y Norteamérica. Está comprometida en comprender cómo las actividades humanas, como la agricultura, impactan en el mundo natural y encontrar formas de mitigar esos impactos. La pasión de Catalina por la naturaleza se extiende más allá de sus intereses de investigación. Le encanta explorar al aire libre, hacer senderismo y observar aves.
About Your Bird Guides
Christopher Di Corrado
I’m a bird-nerd, biologist, and wildlife guide. When I’m not doing that, I may be guiding in Ecuador or Antarctica! I’ll be very glad to be on solid ground to help search for birds with you and make new friends. I grew up in Ontario, and have moved around, and travelled through South America where I learned Spanish- and I’m still learning! I look forward to see you and practicing Spanish!
Catalina is a biologist from Colombia who is currently pursuing her PhD at the University of British Columbia (UBC). She moved to Canada to complete her Master’s degree at UBC after gaining valuable experience in her home country. Her research interests include studying the influence of agriculture on bird biodiversity in the tropics and North America. She is committed to understanding how human activities, such as agriculture, impact the natural world and finding ways to mitigate those impacts. Catalina’s passion for nature extends beyond her research interests. She loves exploring the outdoors, hiking and bird watching.
