Birds and Wildlife of Guyana

The talk will explore some of the 850+ species of the rare, endangered, colourful and magnificent birds and the range of mammals that can be seen whilst out birdwatching.


As part of the Guiana Shield the country is not only remote and barely explored but it is home to healthy populations of species that threatened in other countries. The talk will explore some of the 850+ species of the rare, endangered, colourful and magnificent birds and the range of mammals that can be seen whilst out birdwatching. From rainforest and savannah to the amazing Kaieteur Falls and the coastal forest. With a country the size of Britain and 87% covered in forest it is a birders and wildlife enthusiasts’ dream come true.

Tony is Managing Director of Wilderness Explorers which was the official tour operator partner of the USAID funded project to develop birding tourism in Guyana. Tony represents Guyana annually at the British Birdwatching Fair where he delivers a lecture on the birds and wildlife of the country. Tony has a passion for using tourism to support grass-roots indigenous sustainability and conservation and been instrumental in assisting numerous Amerindian communities develop tourism products.
