I am a Mexican environmental architect and international ecotourism consultant,with professional experience in 80 countries around the world. I coined the term "ecotourism" and its preliminary definition in 1983 (modified version adopted by IUCN in 1996). I am also an ardent birder. I hold what seems to be a world birding record: 4,258 life birds seen in 42 consecutive years: July1969- July 2011: longest streak averaging over 100 life bird species per year (NOTE: For this record, to avoid excessive tapering off towards the beginning and the end of the streak, the first 5 years and the last 5 years of the streak have to also average over 100 life bird species per year).
