2018 Schantz Scholar

Marcel Such


An obsessive birder since the age of six, Marcel Such is passionate in sharing his love and respect for native habitats and the birds that inhabit them. In additional to being an active guide, he also greatly enjoys running ultramarathons (while birding), studying quantitative ecology (mainly focused on birds), and generally getting lost in the mountains (while looking for birds). Marcel will be completing his undergraduate studies in May 2018, graduating with a double major in environmental biology and mathematics from Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado.
