Originally from France, Alzira came to New Zealand in 2015 to explore the country’s unique wilderness and liked it so much she never left. She is a nature enthusiast and avid birder as well as a professional horse trek guide with experience in Western Canada. Her interest for nature conservation has led her to volunteer with French and Canadian environmental NGOs in the past, and now with Forest & Bird in Dunedin, where she lives with her partner.
Alzira has lived in six different countries and speaks French, English and Spanish. She was trained in law, but has since developed versatile skills and experience primarily outside the legal field.
She joined Nature Quest in 2017.
