Before becoming a freelance author and wildlife photographer, Dave Watts
worked as a conservation officer, national parks ranger and forest officer
specialising in wildlife management. A longing to travel led him to
Tasmania where he lived for 20 years before returning to Europe where he
and his Australian born wife divide their time between the Welsh border area
and the French Pyrenees.

While living in Tasmania Dave became the first person ever to photograph the
Orange-bellied Parrot (possibly Australia's rarest bird) at its nest in the
wild in the South West Wilderness. Dave is author of more than 12 books
including the best selling ^Tasmanian Mammals, a Field Guide^ and ^Field
Guide to Tasmanian Birds^.
