Join Kevin Loughlin, owner of Wildside Nature Tours, for this fun, photographic journey through the Peruvian Amazon!
Kevin has led a dozen trips to the Amazon Basin in northern Ecuador and southern Peru as well as in northern Peru, where Wildside uses a riverboat as a floating hotel and runs motorized skiffs to explore the many smaller rivers and creeks for birding and photography.
Hundreds of bird species, 8 - 10 species of monkeys, Pink River Dolphins and Gray Dolphins, caiman, frogs, butterflies, dragonflies and so much more will be shared during this colorful program.
Kevin Loughlin was raised to appreciate nature while exploring the woodlands of Pennsylvania as a child. At age six, during a family trip through the American West, Kevin became fascinated with photography as well seeing the new and different birds throughout North America. Instilled with a love for travel and seeking new, exciting destinations he felt a desire to share his experiences with others and in 1993 he created Wildside.
Kevin’s photographs and articles have appeared in publications such as Audubon, Nature Photographer, WildBird, Birding and Philadelphia Magazines, as well as the many natural history books, most recently “Peterson’s Reference Guide to Owls of North American and the Caribbean” by Scott Weidensaul. Kevin’s current projects include co-authoring a complete revision of John Kricher's popular book “Galapagos: A Natural History.”
