We’re joined again this week by Margarita, the writer and photographer behind the wildlife diaries. The Wildlife Diaries is a wildlife travel blog, dedicated to promoting ethical wildlife tourism through travel stories, trip reports, field notes and photography. Her stories fit in perfectly with this series and it’s safe to say I’m a little obsessed with her Instagram! This week she’ll be telling us about her adventures in Costa Rica’s Tirimbina Reserve and how she came face to face with a Hoffmann’s Two-toed sloth!
We’ve spoken briefly about your animal encounters while in Costa Rica, which have been your favourite to see in their natural environment and why?
How did it make you feel, being able to see them up close in their own home?
You can read even more about Margarita’s Costa Rica adventure here
Did you experience this encounter with a tour? What made you choose that particular company?
Had you seen them before in a zoo/sanctuary? How did it compare?
Animal tourism has become a big thing over the years. Have you had any experiences that looking back on, you feel weren’t very ethical, you perhaps wouldn’t do again or any that you wouldn’t recommend to other, what was it and why?
What advice would you give other travellers looking to see these animals in the wild for themselves?
Do you have any advice on being an ethical traveller?
Our series of stories about ethical wildlife encounters aims to show people that you can see wildlife without putting effecting their lives. If you love more stories like this, be sure to head over to The wildlife Diaries because there’s plenty more to indulge in there!
Now we’re back on the road wildlife Wednesdays will become monthly to make way for more stories from on the road. If you have a story to share, get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or any of our social channels!!!
