Venezuela – traveling with JBL and aquarists


In 2016, I got the honor to accompany a tour group to Venezuela by an invitation from JBL. Due to the good preparation and planning, we were able to travel the country very safely despite the politically difficult situation. The journey consisted of two parts. The first part took us to the estuarine delta of the Orinoco, where we spent a few days in an ecolodge and explored various biotopes there. For the second part were going by small planes (4-6 seats) to Canaima with the aim to visit the Salto Ángel (highest waterfall in the world).
In this talk, I report on this trip and give insights into the flora and fauna we traveled.

For more than 10 years I have been working as a specialist author and speaker in aquaristics. My main topic is the ichthyofauna of South America, especially the plecos and dwarf cichlids.

I hold my lectures at meetings or events of aquarium associations, specialized shops or at trade fairs at home and abroad.

Recently I was on a three-week lecture tour in the US, but I also like to come to your aquarium club, whether it's a small gathering or an event with several hundred participants.
