Meet Rowland

My interest in reptiles and amphibians started early on… about age 8. These beguiling creatures captured my heart and my imagination so strongly that what started as an obsession, later became a profession.

Since 2006 I have been traveling extensively throughout Latin America and India following my passion.

My specialist research interests include population dynamics and the behavioural ecology of snakes. I am particularly interested in addressing questions of snake spatial movements.

I am passionate about sharing information and knowledge about snakes and raising the awareness of the importance of snake conservation.

In 2012 I rekindled my love affair with Latin America and carried out research in both Costa Rica and Guatemala.

It was in Guatemala, while visiting the Estación Biológica las Guacamayas in Laguna del Tigre National Park, that I was inspired to set up a pioneering project to research the reptile and amphibian communities in the area. And so Project Chicchan was born.

If you would like any further information about the Project please get in touch… we would love to hear from you.
