Lance Tanino is originally from Kaneʻohe, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi and currently, lives in Kamuela/Waimea on Hawaiʻi Island. He’s also lived in Maui, Hawaiʻi, on Rota Island in Micronesia, and Keene, New Hampshire. He studied Zoology at the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa and Environmental Studies with a concentration in Conservation Biology at Antioch University New England. Passionate about conservation, natural history, and birds, the move to guiding visitors on nature and birding outings in his home state was a natural fit and started Hawaii Bird Guide, LLC in 2016. He founded Hawaiʻi Conservation and Hawaiʻi Birdwatching groups on Facebook to build an online and growing community of passionate conservationists and birders in the Hawaiian Islands and beyond. In his free time, Lance loves to follow sports on ESPN and experience new areas in the islands for the first time.
Note: This is an open water birding experience.
