Geddes Hislop is a wildlife biologist from Trinidad and Tobago who lives in the Cayman Islands. He developed an interest in the rich variety of wildlife from an early age and, as an educator at heart, he frequently works with everyone from kindergarten students to professional photographers and field scientists. Geddes owns and operates Silver Thatch Excursions, an award-winning ecotourism service operating on Grand Cayman since 1996. He loves culture, hiking, and ecology—particularly ethnobotany and zoology—but birdwatching is his favorite! Geddes currently works as a curator of terrestrial exhibits and education programs and conducts birding tours part-time on weekends and select weekdays.
