Rowland Griffin

“advocate for the conservation of reptiles and amphibians”

Since childhood I have been fascinated by the world of reptiles and amphibians, and conservation is at the heart of everything we do.

My earliest inspiration came from a Burmese python that I had the pleasure of meeting at school when I was just 8. A few years later, having found out I was allergic to fur!!! I brought home my first pet… a garter snake.

My fascination deepened until a pivotal moment came in 2006 during a trip to Peru when I encountered my first wild pitviper – the “Loro machaco“.

From that moment on I have been adventuring, exploring wild places, and discovering new species!

Thankyou Rowland and Adela for opening a door from my heart to learning more about reptiles.

This trip was full of firsts, it always replenishes my soul to explore with such wonderful people, to be able to share, explore and learn.

Rowland is always a patient, kind and generous teacher. He shares his knowledge passionately.

The setting is wonderful, the hosts are warm. I was able to enjoy a mindful and wonderful few days!


I learn to keep my eyes trying to spot reptiles in many different angles and focus… that helped me be inside the forest with a special attention that makes me feel all the benefits of nature.

I also learned to respect nature more than I had, and to respect reptiles because of the importance that they have for the environment..

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to explore and learn from you. And to meet wonderful Guatemalans and foreigners that make such a wonderful and good impact to our country.. we respect and thank you very much.
