Anahí Concari

Anahí grew up in a small house by the beach in the Galápagos Islands. Along with her best friend, she used to wander during the days around mangrove trees, becoming a different animal every day. She used to camp on solitary beaches, snorkel with sharks, dive with her uncle, a local dive instructor, and sail around the islands with her free spirit neighbors, learning about nature with her own hands, eyes and ears.  

With her mother working at the Charles Darwin Foundation, she had the opportunity to spend time with brilliant scientists during lunchtimes and to volunteer with various scientific projects, like the sea turtle monitoring program being held each year during nesting season. 

Passionate about art, she pursued a career in literature and music on mainland Ecuador. As soon as she got her degree, she came back to her islands and volunteered at the Charles Darwin Foundation, helping in the Exhibition Hall. Anahi also worked in the community as a radio DJ, playing jazz and classical music, and she continues to do so, however now with friends, on a Friday night rock radio show. 

Learning about Galápagos through her constant reading and attending the National Park Naturalist guide’s training course, made her a licensed naturalist guide in 2017; and Anahi considers it the best job in the world! She is interested in the evolutionary role of the Galapagos Islands and is also passionate about stars, so be sure to accompany her one evening on the upper deck for star gazing. She is a die-hard fan of the Beatles, Carl Sagan and David Attenborough.
