Gabriel Llerena Reategui (2020)
Alumni Diploma Students
I’m a Peruvian Biologist. I completed my studies in San Agustin National University in Peru where I focused in ecology research and conservation. During my studies I participated in biodiversity assessment and monitoring programs including working with the Museum of Natural History, San Augustin University.
I currently lead a local NGO called PRO CARNIVOROS working with Andean carnivores in southern Peru. The NGO focuses on population studies of the enigmatic Andean cat, and mitigating the human-carnivore conflict in protected areas. Since 2017, I have been the coordinator of the Peruvian focused work for the Andean Cat Alliance. In the Alliance I carry out camera trap surveys to fill gaps of distribution of the Andean Cat and lead a pilot program in Arequipa with the local community.
My expectation in joining WildCRU’s wildlife conservation practice diploma is to improve my research and conservation skills, plus strengthen my knowledge of ecology and conservation of carnivores and general wildlife.
