I obtained my DVM degree (Veterinarian) after finished my thesis working with very remote livestock producers in the Patagonia of Southern Chile. I continued my work with rural communities in the Chiloe Island and began to think about how to combine my professional career with effective conservation work. A main focus of effective conservation is working well with people, and successful conservation efforts combine science with pro-active and applied conservation work, therefore my participation in the program in Wildlife Genetics and Population Health is a great opportunity to carry out my MPVM project and learn about the changes and the characteristics of the population of Southern Sea Otters (Enhydra lutris nereis) in Central and Southern California coast.
