About Patrick De Geest & Eyes on Wildlife

Patrick’s  interest in  nature started when his father began taking him out on field trips in Belgium when he was still a young child. His passion for birds and nature in general has never faded. Since he migrated to Australia, he has spent most of his free time finding and observing birds and other wildlife – mainly in the Wet Tropics of Queensland, but also Cape York and the rest of North and Far North Queensland. He is a member of several conservation groups and organisations.

Patrick was a teacher for 10 years and is very passionate about conservation and getting young people involved in nature/wildlife conservation. He started Eyes on Wildlife to allow him to combine his passion for nature and education in a role as birding and wildlife guide and share all the beauty this part of the world has to offer. His knowledge of and passion for the Wet Tropics and North Queensland will guarantee you a fantastic experience! He can guide you in English and Dutch, and will try to help you out in French if needed.
