Juan Carlos is an ecuadorian/mexican biologist and nature/birding tour guide, grown in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. He is a passionate naturalist with a lifelong interest in wildlife, which evolved at the age of 20 into an absolute fascination with birds and conservation. In its beginnings in birdwatching his favorite place for birding was a forest in his hometown called Cerro Blanco Protected Forest. In which after a few years he decided to train to work as an environmental interpreter. This was a decisive step in his life, as this led him to discover his vocation to share his passion for the birds and their conservation. During the last seven busy years he has devoted himself entirely to working as a guide, traveling, and birding to new areas and has collaborated in bird conservation projects in Ecuador. He has traveled extensively to all 24 provinces of Ecuador, leading tours to different parts of the country specially the west, north and south of it. With his age of 29 he is one of the most experienced birders of Guayaquil and Ecuador, having seen over 1,100 species. Juan Carlos seeks to achieve its dream of encouraging bird conservation in Ecuador and guiding groups of birdwatchers worldwide.
