He is specialised in birds and ecology through Frankfurt Zoological Society, trained in birding by RockJumperBirding in Southern Ethiopia and Utah University in South Africa. He has worked five years as a birding guide around Ethiopia.


Awel has a unique and profound knowledge about birds and habitats in Ethiopia. He is particularly knowledgeable about Bale Mountains and Harenna Forest, two of Ethiopia's absolute hotspots for birding.
