Giant River Otters of the Rio tres Irmaos

Giant Otters were once found throughout large areas of South America .  By the 1970’s their numbers had fallen dramatically. This was mainly due  to a demand for their pelts, deforestation, and human disturbance. When we travelled in 2008 to the Peruvian Amazonian rain forest,  they had become an endangered species. We travelled by canoe up…

It has great hides, especially for photography. The visitor’s centre is always welcoming and informative. We are always impressed at the continuous improvements that…


Minsmere’s Amazing Adders

It was a bright, sunny day in early spring and we were on a morning walk in search of Minsmere’s amazing adders, Britain’s only venomous snake native to the UK.
