When I was asked to join a birding tourism assessment team planning to visit Guyana in November 2008, I was nothing less than exuberant!
In 1996, while editor of The Communicator (newsletter for the Environmental Conservation Tourism Association – ECTA), we published an article by environmental architect David Anderson. The article was about Guyana, and specifically Kaieteur Falls (see photo at left). I was fascinated. Twelve years later I finally made my first visit! The assessment team of which I was part included people with whom I would travel again and again!
The team was assembled by Judy Karwacki of Small World Consulting while the trip was funded by the Guyana Tourism Authority and USAID. The itinerary was designed and led by members of Wilderness Expeditions. Team members came from all over: England, Peru, PA, OH, GA, CA and NY.
So what did we see and do? Who were these people with whom it was so much fun to travel? Upcoming posts and photos will tell all!
