From lowland humid forests, to cool cloud forests or chilly paramo, Sam is equally at home. From early morning birding tours to night hikes for frogs, Sam demonstrates his passion for the rainforest. His expertise is in the neotropical rainforests of Central and South America but also has experience with Caribbean and West Indian island forests, and Asian rainforests.
For first time visitors to the rainforest, Sam recommends reading the book "Tropical Nature" by Adrian Forsyth and Ken Myata.
