FAQs

DO I NEED EXPERIENCE?

Experience in field surveying, or other conservation projects, would be beneficial, but no specialist experience of reptiles or amphibians is required. More important is a willingness to learn!

WHICH SPECIES?

Home to nearly 200 species of reptiles and amphibians, including Yucatan banded gecko, green iguana, red-eyed treefrog, striped basilisk, boa constrictor, and barba amarilla or ‘fer-de-lance‘.

OTHER STRIKING SPECIES

Other notable species found here include howler monkeys, spider monkeys, tapirs, harpy eagles and the elusive and ever alluring jaguar.

RESEARCH SITE

We are based at the Estación Biológica las Guacamayas, in the region of El Petén, northern Guatemala.

ACCOMMODATION

A comfortable shared dorm awaits you, with its own bathroom and even hot water! Wake up each morning to the San Pedro River, as the morning mist rises revealing the first glimpse of a crocodile!

Testimonials

Joining Indigo was hands down the best choice of my life. After a year of suffering as a dishwasher, these past two weeks have been indescribable. I have learned more information by walking through the jungle with Rowland than the past 18 years of me reading books and sitting in a classroom.

Easily one of the greatest and most memorable moments of my life was finding a baby Bothrops eating, which is something you can’t experiment in a classroom. The people I have met and gotten to know during those time are some of the amazing and joyful people ever, and I wish them the best of luck in becoming herpetologists. Thank you for everything Indigo.

What a trip! I’ve been on many similar trips, all over the world and I have to say, this one was one of the best!!

Great location, amazing species (and lots of them!) a fantastic team and top class facilities!

I’m really looking forward to getting more involved in this Project and with Rowland’s skills and enthusiasm, it can only succeed.
