Diana Lopez

Diana was born in Mexico and earned both her bachelor´s and master´s degrees at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, where she focused in marine mammals and bio-acoustics. This led her to discover her passion as a marine fauna observer. She has been working on the field since 2012, collaborating with national and international institutes and ecotourism. She believes that the best way to make the world conscientious about nature conservation is to be able to show and talk about the amazing biodiversity that we still have.

Diana's trigger for an interest in biology started when she was five years old, when her dad had arrived from an oceanographic cruise with a stuffed dolphin as a souvenir. Her family was always the doorway to nature, from camping on the beaches along the Pacific Mexican coastline to hiking in the Sierra Madre Occidental. At each vacation season, her family would pack up for an adventure in a little pick-up truck, visiting most of the states in Mexico. This sparked her career studying grey whales and humpback whales in Baja California Sur, being a marine fauna observer off Tampico, following orcas off British Columbia and  ecotourism in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.

When she's not guiding, travel is Diana's passion, particularly discovering small streets and unusual places. You'll find her on long walks with her dog, reading on the beach, swimming, riding her bike, salsa dancing and drawing wildlife.
