Obituary-32983

Claude Arbour was an accomplished writer, ornithologist, ecologist, conservationist, and expert on backwoods survival, medicinal plants, and animal tracking. He established the Fondation Naturaliste du Lac Villiers and continued his research and conservation activities for ospreys and other birds and animals. Widely recognized for the quality of his observations and data, Arbour frequently collaborated with scientists and professional animal trainers. He lived in the wilderness of northern Quebec, near Saint-Michel-des-Saints, until the summer of 2008 when he chose to end his life after learning he had multiple-sclerosis and could no longer live in the wild that he loved.
