KEN BEHRENS

ECOTOURISM & ECOLOGY CONSULTING + GUIDING + PHOTOGRAPHY

BASED IN MADAGASCAR 

I'm a passionate birder, field naturalist, and world traveller, and a trained biologist. I have worked for over 10 years as a guide for Tropical Birding. At the same time, I have co-authored several natural history books, which are shown below. I'm also a founding member of Pitta Environmental Consulting, and a director of 8th Continent Expeditions. For more on consulting services or Madagascar tours, click on the logos below to check out our websites. 

Born in the US, I first travelled and worked extensively in the western hemisphere and Europe, before moving to Africa, where I have lived for over a decade. I now call Madagascar home, along with my wife and children.
