The Visionary Behind SouthWild:

Dr. Charles Munn

In the vast realm of eco-tourism and wildlife exploration, few names resonate as profoundly as Dr. Charles Munn. Holding a PhD in evolution and ecology from Princeton, Charles is not just an esteemed academic but a passionate explorer, deeply attuned to the rhythms of nature.

His relentless curiosity and groundbreaking discoveries have led him deep into the heart of the Pantanal, unveiling secrets many had only dreamt of. But Charles’s contributions extend far beyond this region. As a field conservationist for the Wildlife Conservation Society, his work on macaw biology, park creation, and innovative models of rainforest ecotourism has been heralded as the world’s finest example of applied conservation biology.

Charles’s vision and dedication have been instrumental in the creation of a staggering 15 million acres of new protected areas and Indian Reserves in Amazonian Peru and Bolivia—an expanse comparable to the entire state of New Hampshire. His innovative predator-viewing systems have not only provided unparalleled wildlife experiences but also created thousands of new, conservation-related jobs.

Recognized globally for his profound impact, Charles has been featured in two National Geographic cover stories. In 2013, Condé Nast Traveller recognized him as one of the world’s three leading experts on wildlife tourism, the only one representing the Western Hemisphere. His accolades don’t stop there; in 1994, TIME magazine acknowledged his transformative influence, selecting him as one of the 100 future leaders of the world—a list that also included luminaries like Bill Gates.

At the core of his endeavors lies a deep commitment to conservation and community. Recognizing the transformative power of immersive experiences, Charles meticulously crafted the Jaguar Extreme tour. Every detail, from the chosen paths to the trained guides, reflects his profound understanding and respect for the Pantanal’s intricate web of life.

When you embark on a SouthWild adventure, you’re not merely stepping into the wild. You’re journeying alongside Charles’s legacy, experiencing the wonders of nature through the eyes of a visionary who has dedicated his life to understanding, preserving, and championing its marvels.
