Director of Mexico
Kathy has a background in applied ecological and behavioural studies of terrestrial and marine fauna for the purpose of developing and evaluating sustainable management plans for protected areas. She has lived and worked in Mexico for over 20 years focusing on biodiversity monitoring and management of protected areas in conjunction with indigenous communities. As she has long standing working relationships with conservation NGO’s and government departments in Mexico, Kathy is responsible for identifying possible new rePLANET sites in Mexico for ecosystem conservation or restoration funded by carbon and biodiversity credits, developing these projects and ensuring that, once implemented each project achieves its objectives. Kathy is also involved in drafting the community development plans and conservation management sections of PDD’s for other rePLANET projects.
