Paz del Castillo Gutiérrez Founder and technichal director
Biologist of Seville, specialized in the management of protected natural areas and interpretation of heritage. A person who loves nature, hiking, photography, dancing and local cuisine.
Since I was a little child, despite my urban origins, I had the opportunity to feel free with shared play in the woods, rivers and mountains thanks to the scout camps. As I became a young woman, my interest in exploring the exceptional natural spots that Andalusia and the rest of Spain hide remained intact.
As a professional, I have been fortunate to work as a biologist in projects of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation in Latin American countries, coordinating the ecotourism and environmental education line of an Araucaria Project, where I managed the training of ecotourism guides for national parks and I developed environmental education programs in local schools, discovering my passion for these working areas. These stays first allowed me to know wonderful environments and cultures in the Peruvian Amazon and, later on, at the foot of the Dominican subtropical dry forest.
Back in Spain, I worked for 10 years providing technical assistance in the field of public use planning to the General Directorate that manages the network of protected natural areas of Andalusia. After years of technical work, where I learned a lot about the multiple options offered by these areas, I developed a desire to reorient my professional career towards an activity that kept me in touch with people and, at the same time, with nature, taking advantage of the accumulated experience to help other people enjoy and come to understand the value of our rich heritage.
I currently collaborate with WWF and the Sevilla Network for Climate, firmly committed to education as a tool to minimize the global change we have to live with. With ENTREVEREDAS I intend to share with people from different backgrounds my favorite natural spots and interact with children and adults, providing both reflection and guidance on the possibilities of reducing our impact on the planet.
