Regua Sum Up

My time at Regua  has been trully amazing.  I highly commend Nicholas and Raquel for what  they have done with / are doing with the land at Regua. Its amazing to think that it used to be a Cattle Ranch, considering the enormous diversity there is at Regua. It is also of high importance  as less than 9% of the Atlantic Rainforest exists.  Everyone from the staff and locals are very friendly most do not speak any english but its easy to get by.  My time was spent mostly  wandering  the trails day and night looking for cool  Insects and animals  which was easy considering the diversity. It helps having  a good  trained  eye for detail as some of the insects  and tiny or well camouflaged,  And as Nicholas  will happily but very jealously tell you.  He thinks I have a natural  born talent.

I also  involved  myself with the guests and created  a photo álbum  of a selection  of my best photos, as a welcome  pack  for guests up at the lodge. During my time there  was  some very lovely  guests that joined us for lunches  as they were interested  in what we we we’re doing,  and although they were primarily Birder’s they had  keen passion in all nature  as they understood the symbiosis everything has in nature.

I had the opportunity  of  doing some conservation education  and gameawith the local  school( recommended)  due to being involed with the Bader family who  came to Regua  with their two boys.

All in all it was a fantastic  experience  and I will be going back semi longterm thanks to Nicholas who just to give you a word of warning is a bit of a character  lol, and try not too make him too  jealous  of any skill or talent you have.  He does play a mean ping pong.
