Club Member Travels-Costa Rica


Event Details


Costa Rica is a Central America country that has coastlines on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The interior between these two coasts is a lush combination of rain forest, active volcanoes, rushing rivers and mist covered mountains. This environment provides a habitat for some of the greatest biodiversity in the world.

Over 900 different species of birds have been recorded in the country, ranging in size from the length of a finger to a couple of feet and with feathers that include a huge array of amazing colors. The most recognizable birds are macaws, toucans, and hummingbirds in this birder’s paradise. In addition to the birds in the rain forest there is an abundance of monkeys, frogs, snakes, sloths, crocodiles, butterflies, lizards, iguanas, coati and bats. Out on the ocean, it is possible to see dolphins, whales, sea turtles and a large variety of fish.

During the last eight months, six club members, Jim and Liz Roach, Brent and Wendy Ovard, Cindy Costa and John Nellist have all travelled to Costa Rica visiting different regions of the country during different seasons. In an online presentation on Tuesday 30th April at 6.30pm, all six of these members will share some of their favorite images while explaining some of the techniques they used to capture these images and their experiences traveling in the country.

Please join us for an interesting and informative evening. This will be an online presentation. After registration, you will receive an email confirmation and the Zoom link.
