Enrique Couve

Enrique is an industrial engineer by profession, although a field naturalist by true passion. One of the two founders and original driving forces behind the Far South Expeditions concept and company, he has been birding and studying the natural history of Chile for more than 45 years. He is co-author of more than 20 publications on the natural heritage of Chile and Patagonia, and among his published works is the praised ‘Birds of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Antarctic Peninsula’. Enrique is a very gifted field spotter, and he uses this skill in his nature photography work, as he has one of the most complete and extensive knowledge of both the flora and fauna of the country. Enrique has extensively travelled throughout Chile and South America, its oceanic islands (including Juan Fernandez) and Antarctica. He is the main author of the long-awaited Field Guide to the Birds of Chile. He is a skilled puma tracker and a pioneer of puma trips in Patagonia and other cat expeditions all over Chile. He is a founding partner and manager of Far South Expeditions and lives in Punta Arenas with his wife Cecilia.
