Wildlife of Patagonia

Join HHLT for a one-hour presentation featuring the stunning wildlife of Patagonia, a huge area of unspoiled country ranging from central Argentina and Chile to the Strait of Magellan. Enjoy fine photographs of unique and fascinating creatures surrounded by amazing scenery. From wild ocean coastlines to arid steppes and the soaring peaks of the Andes, Patagonia is one of the last unspoiled parts of the Americas. Patagonia is known for raging rivers filled with gorgeous trout, jagged mountains topped by glaciers and arid plains with vast herds of cattle watched by the famous gauchos. The talk chronicles a three-week trip to this beautiful region with multiple stops in each country. Writer and photographer Ed Robinson of Orr’s Island is a widely traveled naturalist and will share his knowledge of Patagonia’s beautiful creatures. The presentation will entertain and educate using 150 stunning photos, biological facts, and stories with a Q&A session to follow.

Ed will speak from 6-7 p.m. and answer questions afterward. Registration is requested for planning purposes.

Ed grew up in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of western New York and developed a deep love for the natural world. Since moving to Maine from England in 2007, he has been exploring and writing extensively about the creatures that live here. He has written two books in a series titled Nature Notes from Maine, with a third book on the way. All profits from the books support public education and conservation of the environment around us.

In reviewing Ed’s first book George Smith, former Outdoor News Editor for the Bangor Daily News noted, “This book is full of great stories about Maine’s wild animals. The stories are highly entertaining and brought back memories of my own wildlife encounters. These are the wild creatures that make life in Maine very special.” A reviewer for the Natural Resources Council of Maine described Ed’s writing as “lucid and tranquil.”
