My name is Zack Abbey, hence Zabbey. I earned a degree in Environmental Sciences and Resource Management from CSU Channel Islands. At the moment I work as a field biologist for a consulting firm. Previous money making ventures have included stints as backpacking guide in the Los Padres Nat'l Forest, a contract field biologist around the west coast, and a vector biologist for the County of Ventura Environmental Health Department. As a result I have been lucky enough to explore, study, and enjoy some of California's remote and diverse ecosystems and species.
In my free time I hike and backpack the local wilderness haunts of the Los Padres Nat'l Forest and bodyboard and surf the local beaches, always being attentive to the critters and flora I come across.
I enjoy using iNat as it is a great way for me to keep sharp and expand on my ID skills, as well as adding to my life list. Any help I can provide I'm glad to give and even more so I'm always glad to receive help from those more knowledgeable!
