Zoltán joined our Hungarian partners officially in 2008 when their hide photography section was launched, but had been helping them in the Transylvania region for many years. He speaks good English, good Romanian and perfect Hungarian.
A serious interest in nature began when he was 13 years old. He is based in Székelyudvarhely (Odorheiu Secuiesc) and his local patch is the Hargita Mountains of Transyvania in western Romania, and the various wetlands around his home town. Zoltán has an intimate knowledge of his local area but he has also travelled extensively in the Danube Delta area over the years and had led many tours there.
He started his nature protection work when he joined the Aves Foundation in 1998, where he carried out surveys and monitoring programmes. He is one of the authors of the Romanian bird checklist. Zoltán has also travelled more widely, exploring Slovakia, Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. Most importantly however he is a keen photographer and has perfect knowledge and good eyes to get you into the best photography positions in the Danube Delta or Transylvania.
