I am a great admirer of Narca Moore-Craig . . . Taking a walk through a natural area with Narca is like seeing nature through the eyes of a great artist.

Thank you for making my first birding experience so memorable. Your formidable expertise was invaluable . . . The food and accommodations were great and the itinerary excellent, but most of all what really made the trip was your great leadership. I had a fabulous time.

About Narca Moore-Craig
Tour Leader & Biologist
Many people are under the impression that tour leading is glamorous and involves very little actual work. I can assure you that this isn't true. The photos below show a few of the strenuous challenges involved. Amazingly, given all the challenging requirements, Iím still doing this difficult, arduous work after more than 20 years!
Narca with a group in Argentina (Photo: Walt Anderson)Betchart Expeditions first brought me on board as a guide, and the clients I worked with back then included nonprofit organizations such as World Wildlife Fund, the Smithsonian Institution, San Diego Zoo, and Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology. Later I focused more on birding trips, becoming a guide for Borderland Tours.
Currently I work for two companies:
Peg Abbottís Naturalist Journeys A small company that focuses on natural history, birding, geology, and local culture, and that strives to "put people, places and remarkable experiences together."
WINGS A highly esteemed birding tour company.
It is a privilege to work for both, and an equal privilege to share experiences in the field with our tour participants.
