Mario Napravnik

It was 1994 when Mario became a biologist and visited Tambopata for the first time, and this was the time when a successful relationship started with Rainforest Expeditions. He first began as a researcher and nature interpreter, then as Director of Education and Research, the Operations and Project Manager positions came later, and now Mario leads our company as the General Manger.

Mario is passionate about nature, focused in ecotourism and conservation, with a wide experience designing, implementing, and leading ecotouristic initiatives. Mario still enjoys walking through the trails like when he first came and discovered the rainforest, and he gets mesmerized when he identifies small changes unveiled after 20 years.
