Photography Field Trip: Crococun

The end of my photography class with Photographer Eric Blanc is near, and as part of our program, we went on a field trip to get some nature shots.

We visited a Crocodile farm near Cancun in Puerto Morelos and were able to photograph many interesting things, but the best part of it all is that we were lucky enough to presence the birth of some newborn crocodiles!! and a pregnant Spider Monkey Β with a little one waiting for the family to expand.

spider monkeys live in the wild but they approach the park because they find comfort in the preserved jungle, since the surrounding areas have been devastated they are running out of their habitat, just like many other native species.

The job that biologists and young people do at Crococun is very important for the local wildlife, so I hope you enjoy the pictures and if you ever visit Cancun, Puerto Morelos or Playa del Carmen, don’t hesitate to visit, they have guided tours and your entrance fee will help preserve wildlife.

Our tour guide after opening the door for us to greet the mexican xoloitzcuintle dogs, a very special thanks to out tour guide and all of the staff at the park who make a great job in informing visitors and preserving natural life.

And here are the newborns!
