Sebastián V.

Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador

Hello, my dear future friend, my name is Sebastián and I'm a naturalist national guide of this, little but diverse country of Ecuador.

Due to my father's job, I grew up in different little towns of the countryside like the one where my paternal family has a farm full of animals, crops, forest and rivers. Perhaps, this close and early contact with Nature, plus my curiosity to understand how things work, were the main reasons to have fallen in love with the natural world, and eventually needing to share this admiration for Nature and try to spark some awareness on our global environmental problems as a guide.

After finishing my University degree in Ecotourism I've worked for some of the most prestigious lodges of Ecuador as: Kapawi Lodge (2 years), Sacha Lodge (3 years), Mashpi Lodge (3 years) and La Selva Lodge. I have also been involved with different biology research projects on mammals, toads and birds, around my country.

Last year, I just finished my second degree, at distance, in Environmental Management while working as a driver guide and tour leader. Sometimes I am a traveler, sometimes a photographer, not often enough a diver, but always a nature lover, . . . come with me to show you the wonders of Ecuador.
