    Smile Are they look sensible?

    Are the underlined tenses look good?

    For fifteen years, as part of his job, he has explored the world's jungles and rain forests. Snakes have bitten him more times than he can remember and alligators have attacked him, too. At the moment he is preparing to go back to Amazon. He has loved filming there but another reason is that his brother, James, lives in Manaus, near the Amazon. Jason and James work together when they can. They have filmed in Venezuela several times.

    DO the underlined tenses look good?
    ARE the underlined tenses correct?

    For fifteen years, as part of his job, he has explored the world's jungles and rain forests. Snakes have bitten him more times than he can remember and alligators have attacked him, too. At the moment he is preparing to go back to Amazon.

    He has loved
    This should be "He loves" filming there. The sense of the passage is that he feels this way in the simple present, in the same way that his brother James currently LIVES in Manaus.

    filming there but another reason is that his brother, James, lives in Manaus, near the Amazon. Jason and James work together when they can. They have filmed in Venezuela several times.

    All the other verbs are excellent.

    > The first use of the word "Amazon" should have "the" in front of it.
    > There are too many commas in this passage.
