Both Vega and Alfonso have a deep passion and respect for wildlife, which they hope to transmit and share with those they accompany. They'll be happy to inform you insomuch as they can about much of the fauna encountered on a route, be it reptile, amphibian, mammal, insect, or bird.
Vega and Alfonso are volunteers in the local Seo/Birdlife Harrier campaign, identifying and protecting Montagu and Hen Harrier nests from early harvesting. Click here for more details.
