RSPB Talk - the Jaguar Kingdom - Birds and Mammals of the Mato Grosso, Brazil by John Medlock.

Idg5 JPf25 G UD New RSPB Logo 315 Hx676 W

Fri 9th November, 2018, 7:45pm to 8:45pm

A talk on the birds & mammals of Brazil.

The first half of this talk takes us to the Pantanal, the world's greatest wetland, looking at the wide variety of birds and mammals to be found there, including some dramatic footage of a unique jaguar hunt. The second half moves north to the savannah lands of the high Cerrado and in particular the wildlife to be found in the little known Chapada dos Guimeres national park.

John's talks not only bring to life the wildlife of each area but also discusses the wider environmental issues and threats to that wildlife in an increasingly hostile world.

Brought up on the Romney Marsh in Kent John is an amateur naturalist and photographer who feels very lucky in having been able to travel widely and visit many of the world's wildlife hot spots.
