Anderson Medina

Research Assistant

Anderson started his journey as a research assistant at a young age as a member of the Mashpi Reserve team. He was born in Pachijal a small town near the Reserve and he has always been interested in nature. His experience and knowledge of the forest has been invaluable for many research projects.

He is currently leading the long-term Butterfly Project which is looking at butterflies’ diversity and the efficacy of different baits used in butterfly traps.

Additionally, he participated in the field work and data analysis of the camera trap project developed in the reserve.
