Carlos Cruz

I studied the degree in Biology at the Autonomous Metropolitan University, where I obtained my degree with a thesis work on Raptor Macroecology where I identified the priority conservation sites worldwide and analyzed the effectiveness of the Natural Protected Areas for their conservation. In 2010 I started collaborating with the Pilgrim Fund in the Neotropical Raptors project in Central America and the Caribbean until 2014. In 2011 I started collaborating in the Lab of Ecology and Wildlife Conservation, in principle performing the social service and then as technician in different projects, as well as in publications. I have received seven courses and diplomas in different topics of wildlife conservation and management. I received three scholarships during the degree and thesis work.


     I am currently pursuing my PhD under the direction of Dr. Gerardo Ceballos and Dr. Vicente Urios, focusing on studying the ecology of the Jaguar movement in Quintana Roo. My interests are the ecology of the predator movement and its conservation, as well as the design and implementation of Protected Natural Areas.
