Photographing Wildlife in Costa Rica

Sussex Wildlife Trust Storrington & Arun Valley Regional Group are delighted to invite you to an online event on March 22nd during which George Reekie, one of our group members, will talk to us about his pre-lockdown visit to Costa Rica and show us some of his stunning photographs from this trip.

For anyone who has been to Central America this will bring back some fantastic memories and, for those that haven’t yet, this is a great opportunity to find out more about this part of our natural world.

Please register for the event using the link HERE. It is free to join and please only register once per household.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica has an amazingly abundant and diverse ecosystem. It sets a good example of managing its bio-diversity to the rest of the world. For the photographer there are wonderful opportunities.

This talk aims to give a flavour of the country and its wildlife. In Costa Rica one cannot fail to be overwhelmed by the colour and sheer number of different species. In this respect the talk covers numerous species but concentrates on the exuberant colour to be found everywhere you look.

George Reekie

George has been a serious amateur photographer for many years. He has won many national and international awards in salons of photography. He is involved heavily in the camera club scene, both as a judge and as a lecturer. He has used his photography to give talks to all kinds of local organisations, raising money for charity.

George has achieved Distinction level with the Photographic Association of Great Britain and is an Associate of British Photographic Exhibitions.

George’s interests in photography are wide ranging, but his favourite area is wildlife. This started while living in Zambia and he wishes modern equipment had been available at that time! More lately he has travelled to many countries in the world to photograph the local wildlife and has experienced much of the amazing diversity this planet has to offer.

Recently George has moved to West Sussex from Somerset and is enjoying exploring the area and photographing the wildlife.
