Pau, from Gandia in eastern Spain, has been interested in wildlife all his life. He is a professional ornithologist and wildlife guide, and somehow finds time to work as a professor at the Universitat Politècnica de València, where he teaches Zoology and Wildlife Management.
His ornithological research is a part of a long-term study on the changing passerine community of the bird-rich Mediterranean wetlands, but he is also fascinated by butterflies, dragonflies and mammals.
Pau works closely with the Spanish Butterfly Conservation Society (NGO Zerynthia) and has been instrumental in the creation of several butterfly reserves in his native province of Valencia, benefiting specific target species, including the dramatic Two-tailed Pasha Charaxes jasius.
Pau’s friendly manner and infectious sense of humour make him a popular guide with guests, and his knowledge of the wildlife of southeast Spain is unrivalled.
