Colonia: El Hatillo, Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Central America
Rick, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, has lived in Costa Rica, Honduras, but has visited all the Central American countries, and Haiti. He was a missionary to Central America for nearly 15 years. Rick is a naturalist. He loves to SCUBA dive, and getting wet in creeks and rivers, as well. He loves "herping" and bird watching. Rick graduated from the University of Memphis with a bachelors degree in vertebrate zoology. His love for nature began as a child... he was raised at the Memphis Zoo, but it was not behind bars, moats or glass. His father, Charles Beck, was the curator of reptiles and the aquarium for nearly 4 decades before retiring. No boy's father could have had a better job.
