Christophe Gouraud | the Internet Bird Collection
Christophe was born in France and has been passionate about birds since he was a child. After spending five years in Canada studying ecology, Christophe went to Alaska. He lived on the tiny Middleton Island as a research assistant to study the ecology of seabirds. He explores polar and tropical regions since 2007 and joined many cruises from Svalbard to the Russian Far East, from Antarctica to South Georgia, Tristan da Cuhna and Saint Helena, and from Amazonia to the West Indies.
Christophe also worked with birds as a biologist field worker in Morocco, United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan.
Christophe found another way to travel by inventorying collections of birds that have been collected worldwide during the 18 and 19th centuries.
