Experience: Mariana studied Environmental Sciences in the USA, but returned to her native Peru for 10 years to work as a conservation biologist. She focused on the ecology of macaws, otters, and monkeys in parts of the Amazon. After this, she got more involved with the developing field of ecotourism in the Peruvian Amazon. From this interest, Mariana began working with a women's empowerment crafts program focused on the making of arpilleras. She continues in this line of work, developing new community-based programs in Cusco.
