Highlighted Ranger: Eliz

Field Update

At the end of 2021, Junglkeeprs hired their first woman ranger. Her name is Eliz Lenia Quispe Moreno, she is from Puerto Maldonado,born in 2000. Being the daughter of a father who worked as a logger, Eliz always accompanied him on work trips during every school vacation. Seeing what her dad went through to make sure that she could continue her studies, Eliz learned the importance of work. More than anything, she learned to value the forest and that’s where her passion for taking care of the jungle was born. When she finished high school, Eliz decided to study as an official tourist guide since she could not study biology, a career not offered in the schools of Puerto Maldonado. She practiced her trade as a guide firstly to show the attractions in her region, and secondly to teach others that the jungle in the Madre de Dios area is unique. Eliz still has the dream to study biology and learn more about mammals, birds and plants. Working with Junglekeepers, she feels that she is contributing a grain of sand for conservation.
