The Amazing Wildlife of Ecuador

March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties with our equipment and the presenter’s slide show, we are having Ed Robison come back on March 7th for a rescheduled photo journey to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

The Amazing Wildlife of Ecuador: The Andes, the Amazon, and the Galapagos Islands

Announcing a new one-hour presentation on Ecuador’s diverse wildlife. Enjoy this photographic tour of the lofty Andes mountains, mid-elevation cloud forests, the Amazon Basin, and the storied Galapagos Islands. The talk chronicles a three-week trip to some of the most diverse and unspoiled habitats on Earth, opening the door to the vast array of wild creatures that live there. Writer and photographer Ed Robinson of Orr’s Island, Maine is a widely traveled naturalist and will share his knowledge of the region and its beautiful creatures. The presentation will entertain and educate using 150 stunning photos, biological facts, and stories with a Q&A session to follow.

Ed grew up in the lovely Finger Lakes region of western New York and developed a deep love for the natural world. Since moving to Maine from England in 2007, he has been exploring and writing extensively about the creatures that live here. Ed has written two books in a series titled Nature Notes from Maine, with a third book on the way. All profits from his books support public education and conservation of the environment around us.

In reviewing Ed’s first book George Smith, former Outdoor News Editor for the Bangor Daily News noted, “This book is full of great stories about Maine’s wild animals. The stories are highly entertaining and brought back memories of my own wildlife encounters. These are the wild creatures that make life in Maine very special.” A reviewer for the Natural Resources Council of Maine described Ed’s writing as “lucid and tranquil.”
