Paul McFarling


Paul is British, born of an English father and a French mother, and was brought up in West London, England. In 1984, he came to Galápagos twice to visit his brother, who was a Naturalist Guide there at the time. This sparked off a yearning for these addictive islands, and so sure enough, Paul followed in his brother’s footsteps. He obtained an Honour’s Degree in Environmental Biology from Swansea University, before starting to guide here in 1992. Since then, he has combined his work here with another passion: world history.

Today, Paul’s Galapagos specialties include evolution, birds, geology and human history. He loves wildlife photography and sells his images in his free time.
