Richard Southworth –
The Community Cloud Forest Conservation expedition with Indigo Expeditions was another experience I will remember for years to come, just like my earlier expedition to Las Guacamayas.
I came hoping to see plenty of new herps, and I wasn’t disappointed; so many fantastic species were found, including some critically endangered and scientifically significant ones that I felt very privileged to see.
There was also the opportunity to see some truly beautiful scenery in the Guatemalan highlands, from a variety of altitudes!
As well as this, the expedition was very physically and mentally challenging and allowed me to learn a lot about my own capabilities.
Rowland and the other volunteers were very supportive at the more difficult times, and wonderful to work with as a whole.
Not enough good things can be said about the quality of the CCFC centre itself.
The facilities were extremely comfortable; the food in particular was extremely satisfying; and Rob, Tara and everyone else present at the centre were brilliant, helpful people that it was a delight to spend time with.
Overall, this expedition was brilliant in so many ways, and I’m very glad I was able to participate – thank you for the opportunity!
All the best,
