Tom Ambrose


After completing a degree in environmental sciences at the University of East Anglia, Tom volunteered for the conservation organisation Fauna Forever in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. This allowed him to rediscover his childhood passion for wildlife and he ended up spending the next three years running a bird monitoring program here. This taught him how to band birds, identify hundreds of species by sight and sound and gave him the time to develop a passion for wildlife photography. Tom made his move to tourism in 2014 when he took a position with SouthWild, spending time in Chilean Patagonia, the Pantanal and Venezuela. He feels a strong affinity for South America but also loves to explore new places and all over the globe. He joined Naturetrek in 2018 and helps to maintain our website and social media and has led tours to Peru, France, Italy and Scotland.
