Conservation Program Specialist
Jeff Lemm is a zoo-based herpetologist from Southern California. His studies primarily focus on the conservation of the herpetofauna of the southwestern United States and on the critically endangered rock iguanas (Cyclura sp.) of the Caribbean. An avid field herper and photographer, Jeff has traveled the world extensively in search of reptiles and amphibians. Jeff has done a great deal of research in the Caribbean and studied rock iguanas in Cuba through the 1990’s at the U.S. Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He has traveled through much of western Cuba on a variety of trips, most of which were reptile-related. On this unique, one-of-a-kind herping excursion (which happens to be one of the first Cuban herpetological tours offered to Americans), Jeff will be one of the full-time herpetological guides accompanying the group throughout the trip.
