Mammals, and other Nature

For nearly 25 years, Focus On Nature Tours has
conducted birding and nature tours in Central America.
During that time, there have been
30 tours in Costa Rica, 16 in Guatemala,
10 in Panama (5 of them in the Chiriqui highlands),
11 in Mexico, 3 in Honduras, and 3 in Belize.
Our Central American tours scheduled for 2016
include those in Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala,
Honduras, and Panama.
Other FONT tours have been to the region of the
Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
We're scheduled to go there in November 2015.
And we've been to Sonora, in northern Mexico,
in conjunction with tours in Arizona, for birds,
butterflies, mammals, and other nature.
We always look forward to our tour scheduled for
Belize, for birds, butterflies, mammals, and other nature.
For years, there have been 30 FONT birding and nature
tours in Costa Rica, to an assortment of habitats in
both the northern and southern parts of the country,
usually to places less-populated by people but more so
In 2016, we have scheduled, as we have in the past,
summer tours to Costa Rica and Panama, when teachers
and others are able to go, who otherwise might not be,
in addition to our tours in both northern & southern
Costa Rica in March.
Our Panama Tour scheduled in 2016 for February will
include places in the Canal Basin that are renowned for
birds & other nature, including the famous Pipeline Road.
Our Guatemala Tours include the highlands, where
Quetzals and Mayas live today, and the lowlands in the
Peten Region, where at Tikal, Mayans lived in the past.
At the end of 2015, scheduled once again our is the
annual FONT Holiday Tour in Guatemala.

He did a number of line drawings for FONT - in addition to Tikal,
