Hello from Lima

Hello from Lima

Hola a tod@s, 

I am currently based (and stranded because of COVID 19) in Lima but my work on environment and climate change takes me all over the continent providing support at the policy level to national governments. However,  my passion for conservation has taken me to the West African forests to study elephants and Wildhub seems to be a good place to share and learn from others experience since I have a debt with my research in Ghana that will be resolved once I finish a couple of publications.

I am not sure if I have a single best wildlife encounter as I have been lucky enough to be surprised by new world monkeys, tapirs, tayras, nasuas and pumas while doing field work in the Amazon, and of course by elephants in Ghana so I would say I have many best wildlife encounters. 

Feel free to reach out if you think I can be of any help as I will probably knock on your door if I see any potential collaboration
