Saskia Santamaría

Assistant, Neotropics Program

Saskia has been an ELTI affiliate since 2000.

Panamanian by blood, biologist by trade, Saskia has researched or worked in conservation through wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, captive breeding and capacity building. Before joining ELTI, she oversaw and directly handled the incubation and rearing of several endangered harpy eagles, so they could be reintroduced into the wild. Saskia brings extensive experience with environmental education working with different age groups in rural and urban areas, and actively volunteers with other environmental and climate change initiatives in Panama. 

What do I love about this work? How we empower decision makers with the latest scientific research to help them conserve the environment in a realistic and sustainable way.
