Kevin Loughlin, owner of Wildside Nature Tours, has led 39 tours to the Galapagos Islands as of 2019. This destination is truly one of his favorite places in the world and going back time and again only reinforces that love and desire to return.
As Kevin share's some of his many images made during his many trips to the Galapagos, he will share tips for planning YOUR Galapagos adventure. He will discuss weather, when to go and why, clothing & footwear, camera gear, field guides, suggested reading and more!
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.”
