Discover Costa Rica’s Curiously Cryptic Wildlife – With George McGavin.
Known mainly as an ardent entomologist, George McGavin also has a deep interest in general zoology and ecology. After 25 years as an academic at Oxford University, George became a television presenter, chiefly for the BBC taking him all around the world.
George’s boundless enthusiasm, energy and charm are clearly evident from his TV appearances and he will certainly bring those qualities to bear when helping the group members to observe the abundant wildlife to be found in Costa Rica.
As well as invertebrates, you should see three-toed sloths, up to four species of monkeys, coatis, various snakes, lizards such as iguana and basilisk, crocodiles, turtles and a great many of Costa Rica’s 900 bird species.
Join George, a local Biologist and a small number of like-minded natural history enthusiasts on this uniquely enjoyable journey to the New World and come home with far more knowledge of the hidden (and more visible) wildlife of the tropics than you ever thought possible. Costa Rica is indeed “The Rich Coast” for wildlife.
