Sloths: [Slow-] Moving Islands of Biodiversity
Mike Kent is an excellent all-round naturalist and educator based in southwestern Ontario.
A graduate of the Unversity of Guelph with a background in ecology and geography, Mike worked during his student years as a Park Naturalist at Ontario’s Killbear Provincial Park and the famous Algonquin Provincial Park, and as a Tour Manager at the Monteverde Butterfly Gardens in Costa Rica’s highland cloud forests. Since graduation, Mike works full-time as an Arborist with the City of Sarnia. He has a keen and abiding interest in all life forms with a particular fondness for insects, fungi and other under-appreciated groups. Mike is active as a volunteer with various conservation groups, notably Lambton Wildlife, his ‘home’ naturalist group in Sarnia, Ontario. Mike has led our past tours to Trinidad & Tobago and our Pelee Island spring birding getaways, and regularly participates in Quest Nature Tours weekends at Point Pelee National Park's Festival of Birds as a walk leader. You can be assured of benefiting from his excellent observational and interpretive skills whenever you are on tour with him!
