Marcelo de Cruz (53) started his career as a naturalist and birdwatcher at the age of 22. After completing his studies of tourism in Buenos Aires, he moved to Tierra del Fuego in 1991. Since then he has explored every corner of this island in search of its unique wildlife, and has developed a special ability to find all of its birds, including the least common species. He is also familiar with virtually all the flora and fauna of the Magellanic forests, steppes, high mountains, and seashores in Tierra del Fuego, and cooperates with the National Parks Administration in developing tourism as a sustainable option for conservation. He lives in Ushuaia with his wife, Paula, and his daughter, María Catalina.
