Guyana 2019

Recommended Posts

A new album from my recent expedition to Guyana - we managed to "bite into" the Guyanese Tepuis and savannas a little deeper ;)

After about 1,5 yrs of preparations, planning and struggling to get the ministry-approved permits to visit the Indigenous areas the project came into fruition and we were able to visit the lovely community of Paruima, close to the Venezuelan border. The expedition succeeded in reaching the Guyanese outreach of the Gran Sabana around Uchii Falls and completing the second exploration of the summit of Waukauyeng Tepui after the 1997 Smithsonian expedition. On the summit - new confirmed distribution of Heliamphora heterodoxa.

 

The album will be updated regularly, also feel invited to check out my Instagram profile: https://www.instagram.com/mateusz_explority/?hl=en

Good to see that someone is finally looking at what species on Heliamphora is on Waukauyengtipu.

 

It will be interesting to see how close they are to the plants from Ptari Tepui.

Also does H. collina also occur  around the base or wall of the tepui?
