Special guest scientists:
Dr. Howard Topoff & Dr. Carol Simon


Dr. Howard Topoff and Dr. Carol Simon are scientists recently retired from The American Museum of Natural History in New York, and the City University of New York.  Their specialty is animal behavior, tropical ecology and evolutionary biology.  For the past 30 years, they have been Study Leaders for Naturalist Journeys, The American Museum of Natural History, Elderhostel, The Smithsonian Institute and several cruise lines.

They have a passion for providing quality educational programs about the natural history of the places they visit.  They have developed dozens of educational and entertaining multimedia presentations. 

During the daily excursions on our Introduction to Tropical Biodiversity tour, Dr. Howard Topoff and Dr. Carol Simon, along with our expert guides, will provide insight into the plants and animals we are sure to find.  In the evenings, they will give us a presentation to further our understanding of the animals and their behaviors that we are seeing in the forest and surrounding environments during the day.  We are thrilled to have them join us for this special program!
