Margherita is based in Barcelona and will work as a remote collaborator helping with the organisation of all media related content, including videos and images.

Margherita has always loved animals and especially learning about what makes them tick. She grew up in various countries around the world but her passion found its focus in Eritrea during her teens. There, she began to understand the delicate balances that are at play in unique ecosystems and uncontaminated habitats.

She obtained her higher education in Italy, completing a bachelors in Natural Sciences before going on to study a masters in Ethology, which she found to be her true vocation. Margherita's career took her to a series of different settings, including a wildlife sanctuary in South Africa and protected areas in Portugal and Spain. These work experiences and her solid work ethic led her to become a passionate otter expert closely collaborating with the IUCN/SSC Otter Specialist Group. Currently, she is also on the board of the WWF Italy and helps manage the WWF YOUng Italy.

Margherita is most passionate about research, educational material, and outreach programs. Positive, creative, and motivated, she is looking forward to working with projects that will help experts and people who work with animals all around the world increase animal welfare and learn more about the individuals they care for.
