Sanivalati Vido has been a Forest Ranger for the Fiji Department of Forest for over 20 years.  He is also regarded as one of Fiji’s best ornithologists. Vido has assisted scientists in herptile fauna surveys and insects collections and has participated in most of the scientific expeditions collecting baseline data in some of Fiji’s remotest areas.

He is passionate about learning the ecology of wildlife and has never lost his sense of curiosity, keen observation or patience, which is a bonus to scientists.  He will patiently watch the animal, observe how it behaves and then describe it in detail to astonished scientists.

A quiet and shy man, Vido is very funny and witty and throws in a joke to get everyone laughing at the toughest and most trying time of an expedition. A burst of laughter in the forest is his signature to his friends and colleagues that Vido’s there!
