Dr. Paul Salaman

"At the age of eight Paul met Sir David Attenborough and became enthused by conservation and natural history and by age 14 he was already managing a small nature reserve in London, UK. As an undergraduate, Paul led a series of expeditions across Colombia, spending a total of over three years in the field that culminated in a new national park and four private protected areas. In 1992, Paul won the first BP Conservation Award. He has described four bird species new to science, including the Choco Vireo that he discovered at the age of 19 and helped rediscovery several other species. In 1998, Paul assisted the establishment of Fundacion ProAves that has become one of the most effective conservation NGOs in South America. After graduating with a D.Phil from the Univeristy of Oxford in 2001 he undertook a post-doc at The Natural History Museum, before coordinating biodiversity science for Conservation International across the Tropical Andes based in Quito and Bogota. In 2005, Paul joined American Bird Conservancy as the Director of International Programs and since 2008 working for the World Land Trust based near Washington DC." [1]
