Michael Jackson

General Assembly Member of CDF

Michael first came to the Galapagos Islands in 1980 to work as a naturalist guide for a year with Metropolitan Touring. He returned in 1982 as part of a Cambridge University expedition to study the feeding ecology of marine iguanas. Since that time he has returned almost annually to lead trips. In 1986 he published Galapagos - A Natural History, a comprehensive guide to the natural history of the islands which still remains in print.

Michael joined the CDF as a Governing member in 2006 and has remained actively involved since then. He joined the Membership, Nominations and Elections Committee in 2010 and is currently chair of the group. His experience with technology has been an asset to this group.

Michael is originally British, but moved to Canada in 1982. He currently lives in Victoria, British Columbia and has recently retired from a career of teaching science.
