“Mammals have always been the focus of attention for naturalists traveling to places like Africa, but in the last few years, more and more nature travelers have shifted their attention to the Neotropics, due to their wide variety of not just land, but also marine mammals. Latin America’s vast and varied habitats, ranging from rainforests to grasslands and wetlands, and from endless seashores and islands to the mighty Andean range, are home to a wide array of iconic species including Jaguar, Giant Otter, Tapir, Puma, Southern Elephant Seal and Orca to name but a few.”
According to Mammal Diversity Database (MDD), there are roughly 1,617 species of mammals in the Neotropics, making of this region the one with the highest number of species on Earth, followed by the Afrotropical region with 1,572.
Trogon Tours has pioneered mammal watching and photography tours since the early 2000s, taking nature travelers to the most spectacular mammal hotspots in the Neotropics, including the Brazilian Pantanal, mighty Patagonia and many others. Join us on our mammal expeditions in Latin America and Antarctica, to explore their natural habitats looking for their rare and unique mammal species, as we explore fantastic destinations in this mega-diverse region of our planet.
Watching and photographing mammals is always challenging, as it requires a great deal of patience and a very good understanding of their natural habitat. Throughout the years, Trogon Tours’ expedition leaders have acquired lots of experience in tracking, finding and approaching mammals and they are eager to share their knowledge with fellow naturalists willing to learn more about Neotropical and Antarctic animals.
Join us on any of our mammal expeditions to discover the most unique and spectacular species of the richest bio-geographical region on Earth!
