Venicio “Beny” Emmanuelle Wilson was born in Almirante, province of Bocas del Toro in Western Panama in a house surrounded by beautiful creeks and swamps and forests. It was there where his father and grandfather inspired his interest in “the little animals”, as he used to say.
Beny’s passion for birds began at age 16 when he accidentally got a copy of the newly translated Spanish version of “A Field Guide to the Birds of Panama”. Two years later, along with other fellow biology students at the University of Panama, created Grupo Ecologista Vida, a nonprofit group carrying out environmental education for school kids in the city of Colon. Besides hiking and birding, Beny is also is a connoisseur in frogs, especially the Dendrobatid poison frogs. He recently received his credentials as a Certified Interpretive Guide from the National Association for Interpretation (NAI) in the US.
