Gavin Brink was a dedicated herpetologist who loved Costa Rica (CR). He first started visiting CR in 2005 with a study abroad experience in biological field research and continued nearly every year throughout his career. He held degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Recreation & Park Administration. Gavin devoted his life to animals, specifically Snakes of Latin America (SoLA), as well as supporting wildlife education and conservation. Gavin sadly passed away before Camaquiri was purchased, so his family invested in the property on his behalf.
