- Author BiographyKEVIN CORCORAN has an intimate knowledge and love of the Irish landscape. An environmental biologist, he has studied the West of Ireland both professionally and as a rambler, and lectures on Ecology and Environmental Studies. Operating a private nature reserve, he is tirelessly involved in the repair and creation of natural habitats, for both educational and preservation purposes. Conscious of the constant degradation of the natural environment, he is a keen supporter of the Irish Wildlife Federation and their efforts to purchase and preserve diminishing habitats. An ardent advocate of sustainable living with the natural environment, he presently lives as an Eco-dweller and rejects all forms of mass consumerism. Much of his free time is spent hill walking, sketching, writing and recording the demise of our natural environment. Kevin's books of walks are the result of extensive study of the areas and their natural habitats, flora and fauna, wildlife. As well as giving clear instructions and detailed maps, the books are beautifully illustrated by the author himself.
