Paul Rosolie - Naturalist and Amazon rainforest explorer

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 11 April 2014

Paul Rosolie is a naturalist, explorer, author, and rainforest and wildlife specialist, who ran away to the Amazon from New York aged just 18. Now 26, he has specialised in the western Amazon for nearly a decade. He runs a conservation project called Tamandua Expeditions that uses tourism to support rainforest conservation. Among his many adventures, Paul has traveled with poachers into deep jungle to document the black market trade in endangered species and has explored a previously undocumented ecosystem that has come to be called the 'floating forest'. His book, Mother of God, is published by Random House.
