Alex Tozer is the Director of Operations for Operation Wallacea. Before joining Opwall, Alex studied psychology, not expecting to be an expedition leader. He had his start with Opwall as a volunteer in Honduras in 2003. Today, Alex is a licensed bird ringer, wildlife photographer, EFR instructor, and most importantly the person who makes sure all the Opwall expeditions run smoothly. He has played a critical role in expanding Opwall's focus during the pandemic to include many new projects, including providing income to local partners through reforestation and carbon credit initiatives around the world. In this special episode, we discuss Opwall's reforestation efforts in Sulawesi, how carbon credits work, and how planting trees can support people, animals, and the planet.
