André F. Raine
Dr. Raine is a Bermudian ornithologist who has worked on conservation projects throughout the world. He spent his youth exploring the rocky coastlines and tide pools of St. David’s Parish. While undertaking his BSc in Wildlife Biology in Canada, he returned each summer to work as part of the government’s Conservation Unit, becoming an expert on the island’s wildlife. He also spent several years helping with conservation efforts to recover the population of Bermuda Cahow – one of the world’s rarest seabirds – and became the second person to successfully hand-rear an abandoned Cahow chick to fledging. His MSc thesis focused on Bermuda’s only endemic terrestrial vertebrate – the Bermuda Skink. He has a PhD from the University of East Anglia on moorland birds and has written three bird books, including The Photographic Guide to the Birds of Bermuda, and numerous scientific publications. He currently runs an endangered seabird project in Hawaii.
