S1 Episode 20: Regina Ribeiro


Charles and Jon interview  Regina Ribeiro, arguably Brazil’s top mammalwatching guide. Regina talks about her journey to become one of Brazil’s first female wildlife guides, and runs through her own list of the Brazilian Big 5. She also talks about what can go wrong when you have to take a minibus along the Transpantaneira.


Many trip reports featuring Regina are on mammalwatching’s Brazil page, including Jon’s first trip to Brazil in 2007. Information from the citizen science report on Jaguar’s that Regina mentioned is here.  Cover art: Pantanal Jaguar, by Regina Ribeiro.
