Biró Zsolt
The Transylvanian Wildlife Project is pleased to announce the appointment of a new team member Biró Zsolt. He will fulfil three roles for the TWP :-
1. Environmental Protection Advisor
2. TWP Official Translator
3. TWP Environmental Photographer

Zsolt was born in Transylvania, Tirgu Mures (Marosvásárhely), on January 28, 1969. He was raised in an area known as Székelyland. This at one time was in Hungarian territory but later became part of Romania.

After graduating from high school, Zsolt went to Hungary to study biology and environmental protection and awarded a BSc degree in these subjects. He then went to the Gábor Dénes College to study software engineering, and then spent another four years there specialising in programming. Zsolt was eventually promoted to assistant lecturer at the Berzsenyi Dániel College, teaching students how to use the Internet as part of their research. After two years in this post Zsolt then decided to become a self-employed freelance translator. His high quality work was soon recognised and now one of his main clients is the Microsoft corporation.

His interest in photography started as a child with the legendary Russian “Smena” (this was the first camera of most children in the Eastern Block!). Later he bought a “Zenit”, and then in 2002 bought his first digital camera. He now uses a Canon 450D, with an 18-55 kit lens along with a 75-300 mm lens. For more examples of Zsolt's work please take a look at his portfolio.
