Dr. Bert Harris

Berton (Bert) is an ornithologist with a strong desire to do conservation on the ground.

He has expert knowledge on the birds of Southeast Asia and the Neotropics, and a history of doing research with real conservation impact. Early in his career, his research on the Esmeraldas Woodstar with the Jocotoco Foundation led to the creation of a reserve for the species. For his Ph.D. at the University of Adelaide, he studied the effects of climate change and habitat loss on birds in Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia. During his postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University, he studied how the wildlife trade impacted bird populations in Sumatra. He has published widely in peer reviewed literature on the ecology and conservation of tropical birds. Now, he seeks to apply his knowledge to optimize conservation work.
