Santiago de la Vega

Ornithologist

I have lived more than 28 months in Antarctica (Esperanza Station, Hope Bay, Antarctic Peninsula; Jubany Station, King George Island) working as a marine biologist for the Instituto Antartico Argentino in the field of Coastal Ecology.
During the last sixteen years I has been guiding Natural History and birding trips through the main natural areas of Argentina and Central and Southern Chile.  Since 1999, I am writing and publishing Natural History hand-books of the main areas I visited, having eight handbooks published until now.  January 2007 was my first season with Quark Expeditions, and since then I'm returning every summer to Antarctica. My home place is Buenos Aires, where I live with my wife, and two children.
