A Presentation for York Audubon

Caribbean Islands? South American Country? Yes to both! The colorful, vibrant, English speaking Caribbean culture belies the fact that this dual-island nation lies just 7 miles off the coast of Venezuela.

This proximity to the South American Continent (and at one time not having water between) allowed a diversity of nearly 500 species of birds and many of the mammals found on the main continent, such as sloths and several species of monkeys.

Join nature photographer, photo instructor, birder and Wildside leader, Roger Neckles, on this colorful adventure through his eyes and images to discover all that Trinidad & Tobago have to offer!
