Mr. Santiago Antonio Garcia Llore



  • MS Colorado State University 2016
  • BS Universidad Estatal de Guayaquil 2004


I am a biologist from Guayaquil, Ecuador. In 2016, I finished my MSc. in Conservation Leadership at Colorado State University (Human Dimensions of Natural Resources Department). I have 14 years of experience working with local and indigenous communities in South America. I will conduct an spatial risk mapping in Ecuador as a tool to plan and implement human-Andean bear conflict mitigation measure. My main areas of interest are focusing on sustainable forest management, deforestation & land conversion, human-wildlife conflicts and climate change.
