Saturday Video: Guayana’s Wildly Diverse & Rare Wildlife

Lost Land of the Jaguar EP1 PART1

In the Caribbean, where the most diverse wildlife is typically found underwater, Guyana stands out for the absolutely stunning array of animal species roaming its 83,000 square miles. As shown in the BBC video above, much of Guyana is still virtually unexplored, making it a prime place to find some really unique animals. How unique? One of the naturalists working with the BBC lays it out succinctly near the start of the video: “There are probably hundreds, if not thousands of species here that haven’t been seen by anybody.”


I’m guessing that many of them are not all that friendly, but imagine the thrill of capturing some of the country’s more elusive animal inhabitants on film during a trip there! That’s exactly the type of adventure we hope to have there later this year…
