When Royer was born in Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre on the Osa Peninsula in 1982, the small village was known for gold mining, hunting, and deforestation. Conservation was not common practice yet in Costa Rica at that time. In 2002 he started working in the tourism industry and found his love in guiding people and showing them the beautiful nature of his home – the Osa Peninsula! He met many different travelers from all over the world, who loved nature, and Royer and other people of the Osa started to appreciate and value their surroundings more and more. Royer is 100% a naturalist and conservationist in his heart and daily life.
