Cristian Jensen is our Principal Guide in Spain, Morocco and the Canaries.
He trained as an environmental educator and worked as a forest ranger before setting up his own guiding business in the bird-rich Ebro Delta. In recent years he has spent many seasons in Morocco, guiding British groups and educating his local contacts in wildlife protection.
Cristian grew up in Barcelona. Having a Danish father and a Catalan mother it’s not surprising that he is fluent in Spanish, Catalan and English as well as having basic French and Danish.
An enthusiastic birder since the age of 12, he is familiar with the birdwatching hotspots throughout Spain (including the islands). During the last ten years, he has worked professionally in many aspects of bird life; e.g reintroduction of Peregrine Falcons in Barcelona, and abroad for the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation. He is a ringer and researcher, also involved with educational projects for schools. During the last 12 years he has become increasingly focused on leading birding tours throughout Spain and Morocco.
He is a member of SEO/Birdlife and has already led more than 100 tours for British bird-watching groups so is very experienced despite being our youngest guide!
