Roger-Marchant1Roger Marchant has had an interest in the Natural World since childhood which led him to read Botany at University College London. From there he embarked on an academic career teaching and researching in Microbiology and Biotechnology at the University of Ulster. The academic life allowed regular travel around the world and links with a wide range of biologists in other countries. Towards the end of his working career Roger rediscovered an earlier interest in photography and is now an avid recorder of birds, plants and animals in the locations he visits. Although he still retains some active research interests, as an Emeritus Professor he now has more time to devote to pursuing his interest in travel. The interest in plants and horticulture has never left him and the trip to Yunnan will provide an ideal location for a fusion of plant and bird experiences and photography in a single expedition. Roger Marchant already has experience of travelling with the company to locations in South America and to Sichuan province in China and will be able to provide any support required by the participants on this trip.
Tour leader: Each tour will have a representative of Worldwide Birding Tours to accompany it, ensuring attention to detail, and fullfilling our pledge not to send you on holiday, but to take you.
