How do your perspectives about nature differ to those of your family?
From my point of view, I absolutely love nature. When I was small I always dreamed of working with supporting conservation and I feel so happy that my dream has come true. I’ve never liked the maltreatment of animals, or hunting, or felling trees.
My family also really likes nature. One anecdote that I have is that ten years ago, my father was a hunter, but seeing that it was something that I so passionately objected to, he left it. And now he is the greatest forest conservationist out there.
What makes Mashpi such a special place?
The nature here in these forests is very well protected and we have a high rate of endemism. And of course, the love and determination that the people that work here put in so that each guest’s stay is unforgettable. Because what we do is not only work but something that we like and that we are proud to do.
