Carol was born in Hertfordshire, north of London, England and developed a very early interest in birds. After a successful career in financial services, Carol founded the Vancouver Avian Research Centre Society (VARC), a Registered Canadian Charity dedicated to wild bird research, conservation and education. A passionate ornithologist and conservationist; Carol is the Executive Director of the Vancouver Avian Research Centre, and dedicates her time to raising awareness of the environmental issues facing our birds and other wildlife. With her husband Derek, they have traveled extensively birding throughout the world in over 85 countries and have a life list of over 5,500 species and developed World Bird Traveler as a resource to help birders plan birding trips worldwide.
Carol enjoys sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for birds and the environment with others, and this can be seen from the many testimonials from participants in the workshops that she teaches and at other VARC events. She is also known as an entertaining educator and charismatic speaker who addresses groups across the country on issues relating to birds and the environment.
