Amazon River Cruise: A Birding & Natural History Odyssey

About This Webinar

The Amazon River, the most diverse watershed on earth, hosts the world’s largest avifauna and myriad other life forms. The very word “Amazon” brings to mind flocks of parrots and macaws, toucans, raptors, wonderful cloud formations, golden sunsets, vast tributaries, Pink River Dolphins, primates, and fascinating culture. Our Amazon River Cruise is always among our most popular departures. From Iquitos, Peru, we will explore three major rivers and various tributaries aboard the beautiful and extremely comfortable Zafiro. Individual cabins face the river, and an upper deck offers a delightful wildlife observation experience. Excellent cuisine and service are provided by a riverboat crew that is among the best in the world. Please join us June 8, 2023 for an encore presentation of “Amazon River Cruise: A Birding & Natural History Odyssey” with David Ascanio, Andrew Whittaker, and Doris Valencia, who will share the extraordinary birds, wildlife, and culture of the incomparable Amazon River.

Victor Emanuel started birding in Texas 73 years ago at the age of eight. His travels have taken him to all the continents, with his areas of concentration being Texas, Arizona, Mexico, Panama, and Peru. He is the founder and compiler for 50 years of the record-breaking Freeport Christmas Bird Count, and served a term as president of the Texas Ornithological Society. Birds and natural history have been a major focus throughout his life. He derives great pleasure from seeing and hearing birds, and sharing with others these avian sights and sounds, both the common ones and the more unusual ones. He initiated the first birding camps for young people, and considers that one of his greatest achievements.

Victor holds a B.A. in zoology and botany from the University of Texas and an M.A. in government from Harvard. In 1993, he was the recipient of the Roger Tory Peterson Excellence in Birding Award, given by the Houston Audubon Society in recognition of a lifetime of dedication to careful observation, education, and addition to the body of avian knowledge. In 2004, he received the Roger Tory Peterson Award from the American Birding Association, and the Arthur A. Allen Award from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.

Victor is a past board member of the Nature Conservancy of Texas, the National Audubon Society, the American Bird Conservancy, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. In May 2017, the University of Texas Press published his memoir, One More Warbler, A Life with Birds.
