Season 3, Ep. 7: South Texas – A Hint of the Tropics

This is a place that few of us will ever visit. It’s packed with biodiversity. Many of the plants and animals that are found here can be found no place else in the United States and their future is tied to a connection with Mexico, here on the border. Join Patrick as he explores a land of Green Jays and Plain Chachalacas in South Texas.

  • #201 — Belize - The Mayan Forest
    There are very few places that we think of as more inhospitable than a hot humid tropical forest, but they are incredibly intriguing, especially this one. This forest is not only diverse but you can see animals such as Ocellated Turkeys, Spider Monkeys, Yucatan Black Howlers and a diversity of tropical birds much easier than you can in much of the remaining forest in Central America and this forest has a history unlike any other. Join Patrick as he explores the Mayan Forest.
