Monica joined Sky Island Alliance in 2021 as a summer intern and first started working with us on our wildlife-camera projects. In her current role, she is our full-time Environmental Outreach Coordinator, helping with various conservation projects in Sonora.
In February 2022, she graduated from Universidad de la Sierra with a degree in Biology. During her time in school, she really enjoyed all the classes that had to do with conservation, ecosystem management, population, and community studies. She has also participated in courses on management of snakes and monitoring wildlife with remote cameras.
Over the next 30 years, she hopes that the organization will continue to grow in Sonora as it is today. And she hopes that conservation projects continue to be strengthened for the benefit of all. Her interests outside work are quite connected to her work. She really likes going on picnics with her dad, horseback riding, and discovering new places in nature.
