New Seacology Field Rep in Chile: Claudio Delgado
Seacology’s field representatives are the eyes and ears of our organization, monitoring our projects and funding opportunities for new ones. We’re happy to add Claudio Delgado to our roster as our first field representative in Chile.
Claudio earned his bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology from the Universidad Austral de Chile and studied the Integrated Management of Coastal Zones at Guadalajara University in Mexico. In 2003, he founded Conservación Marina, a Chilean NGO promoting the sustainable use of marine biodiversity along the Chilean coast. As the organization’s director, Claudio led conservation projects related to marine mammal research, conservation of migratory shorebirds on Chiloé Island, and planning for the sustainable use and conservation for Mocha Island.
Claudio lives in Valdivia with his two children and wife. Besides being a committed conservationist, he loves hiking, mountain biking, and sea kayaking.
