Maira Gómez

Field Assistant

Maira Gómez is a person who likes nature since her love for plants started in her childhood. She arrived to the Galapagos Islands when she was 18 and discovered a different way of living. She was able to get into direct contact with the endemic plants of her beloved Floreana island, bonding together. She had the opportunity to get involved in the nurseries management by collaborating with the Charles Darwin Foundation to implement native gardens, which involved the community 13 years ago. This allowed her to share his knowledge with the locals and now, as Field Assistant for the Galapagos Verde 2050 program on Floreana Island, she will be in charge of the rural, urban and special-use sites' ecological restoration, with which she will look to achieve her dream of making Floreana green and full of life.
