Loraiza is a Biologist with over 20 years experience in nature/forest conservation and research; and a Master’s in Environment and Development from King’s College London. She has worked for several international conservation organisations such as RSPB, Birdlife and WWF.
She is originally from South America (Cuba). Since her days as a biology student she has been exploring the tropical forests of this vast continent and campaigning for their protection. However the restrictive environmental regulations banning locals from protected areas ignited her passion for development, looking at the integration of humans into their environment in a sustainable way.
Her passion for travel, environment conservation and sustainable development coupled with a thirst for exploring wilderness and protecting the natural world led to the conception of Green Planet Ventures.
