Biography

Heinz Lainer was born in 1943 in war-time Germany. He got seriously interested in birdwatching and birdbanding while schooling and studying chemistry at Munich University. After travelling extensively in Africa and Asia in his twenties, he settled down in Goa in 1974 where he has been residing since almost without interruption. Here he took up ornithology in right earnest, travelling widely in India but concentrating mainly on Goa’s birdlife. He has published a number of papers on it in the Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society.

Rahul Alvares was born in 1981 and today conducts his own bird and snake excursions into some of the best wildlife areas of Goa. During his spare time, he edits an on-line newsletter on his work called The Creepy Times. He juggles his wildlife career with being a fitness instructor and a myofacial trigger point therapist. In 2004, Alvares was selected for the ‘The Young Naturalist Award’ by Sanctuary and ABN-Amro Bank. In 2008, he was nominated for the ‘Carl Zeiss Wildlife Commitment’ Award. His earlier books, Free from School and The Call of the Snake have gone into several editions.
