Benny Jacobs-Schwartz - Birding Guide, Environmental Educator, Photographer

Benny Jacobs-Schwartz has been an avid outdoor recreationist since his teens but his bird journey took flight in 2011 during a college tropical ecology program in Monteverde, Costa Rica. Since then he has been a feather obsessed birder and has worked professionally for over 10 years as a naturalist guide, expedition trip leader, and birding guide. He has worked in a variety of locations coast to coast, including exotic places such as; coastal Alaska, Central America, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Ecuadorian Amazon. 

Benny uses his ample collection of nature-based content to leverage an active social media presence. He’s brimming with enthusiasm for the natural world and hopes to inspire others to put down their phone and pick up their Binos. 

Benny recently relocated his homebase to Costa Rica but still spends time in Los Angeles where he was born and raised. When not guiding, Benny enjoys mountain biking, surfing, rock climbing, practicing yoga and spending time exploring new places and birds!
