The proprietor and founder of Bhutan Birding and Heritage Travels, Hishey Tshering is an avid birder, a football fanatic (a die-hard Arsenal fan), and a keen conservationist. Prior to establishing the company, Hishey had worked for the Royal Society for the Protection of Nature as a communications officer. During his years at RSPN, he played a pivotal role in the protection of the Black-necked Crane. He was instrumental in starting the Black-necked Crane festival which is now a very successful annual event visited by bird enthusiasts from all over the world. Hishey continues to support the festival by making yearly contributions.

Besides his involvement in the tourism industry, Hishey is also the owner of Thimphu City FC – a semi-professional club that competes at the highest level of Bhutanese football.
