Born and raised on Long Island (New York), Chris Paparo has been exploring the wilds of the island for over 30 years. As a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer, he enjoys bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. His passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led him to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and he currently manages the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.
An award winning member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and the New York State Outdoor Writers Association, Paparo writes monthly columns for On The Water Magazine and The Northforker. Additionally, he is a freelance writer for several other fishing and wildlife related publications. Although his work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.
