About Nicky Petkov

I am a conservation professional with some over 20 years of background. I hold a Ph.D. in bird ecology and have been working on bird conservation for the past over 25 years. My work is focused mostly on waterbirds and wetlands, but have held various positions over the years. I live in Bulgaria, but do a lot of international work as well linked to the projects I do or on consultancy based for local NGOs. I am the coordinator of the AEWA Red-breasted Goose International Working Group for the past 10 years now.
