Annegret Liederbach, President
Program: Evolutionary Biology (Hons.)
Year Level: 3
Hello! I’m Annegret, continuing president for the 2016-2017 school year.
My fascination for birds go way back to when I was a toddler, but it was in my early high school years when I took up birding as a hobby. In the future, I hope to specialize in evolutionary biology, ecology, and conservation of birds and other animals.
Although my knowledge of North American birds is still limited, I hope I can share my passion towards these feathered creatures with all of you!

Program: Arts (Economics)
Year Level: 2
Hi everyone! I’m Cyrus and I’m a second year Arts student pursuing economics. I just got started with birding after joining the club last year and it’s super fun and relaxing! I love going on hikes, and field trips were always the best part of school, so birding is a great way to combine the two in college. I’m excited to learn more about the birds in our region and to see them in our bird walks this year!

Louis Almario, Photographer
Hi everyone! my name is Louis Almario. I was a former Biology student back in the Philippines. I am also a volunteer staff at the Vancouver Aquarium . My interest in birds started way back during my younger years. As of today, birding has became a major part of my hobby as a photographer. I really love venturing into places in Vancouver that are filled diverse species of birds. Amazingly, I’ve already photographed and identified more than 60 species of birds that are local and rare around in the Vancouver area. I joined the birding club so I can share my knowledge and field experiences on such fascinating creatures.
