CHRISTOPHER TARANGO
received a B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of California Santa Cruz. During his time there, he studied the soundscape ecology of Cassin’s Auklet vocalizations on South East Farralon Island. He also researched the feeding behaviors of mixed flocks in the canopy of Costa Rica’s cloud forests. As an Analyst at CMI, he assisted in the development of acoustic monitoring programs for Hawaiian Petrel, Newell’s Shearwater and several other species. He now works as a staff biologist at an environmental consulting company and plans to pursue a PhD studying avian behavior in the near future.
