October 2020 Online / Magazine Highlights
Howler’s October e-magazine cover story sets the stage for adventure on Costa Rica’s iconic Cocos Island, with a different twist. The primary purpose was not to see sharks, although underwater exploration in one of the world’s most magnificent ocean habitats would still be on the 10-day trip itinerary. Otherwise, special bird species endemic to the island were a key reason for the author and other birding enthusiasts to immerse themselves in nature’s diverse abundance throughout their visit. It was also the perfect opportunity to escape all that has made everyday life challenging in recent months.
