Ornithologist & French-Speaking Guide
Fabrice is a freelance biologist with a special interest in birds. His polar experiences began in 1989, when he spent 18 months working as a field researcher studying the seabirds and marine mammals of the remote Kerguelen Islands (a French sub-Antarctic territory). He began working in the Arctic in 1992 and since then has lead groups in remote places like the Northwest and Northeast Passages, the Bering Strait and Russian Far East, the Canadian High Arctic, Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and the geographic North Pole.
Fabrice is the author of Animals of the Polar Regions (Seuil Eds., 2004) and co-author with Frank S. Todd, of the highly acclaimed Birds and Mammals of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean (Kameleo Eds., 2006). More recently, he has published two books on seabird ecology. When he is not traveling in the Polar Regions, Fabrice conducts field research on birds with Paris’s Museum of Natural History and spends time on his small farm in the French countryside.
