Alejandro is an Ecuadorian–Venezuelan biologist and conservationist. He has discovered and described 29 new species to science and raised funds to save 106 hectares of Chocó rainforest in Ecuador. He is also a nature photographer. In 2015, he was awarded in the Big Picture Natural World Photography competition. Since 2021, Discovery and The Explorers Club became sponsors of Alejandro’s expeditions in search for new or “lost” species in remote areas of the tropics. He serves as President and researcher at Khamai Foundation, a non-governmental organization (NGO) created in 2022 to prevent loss of tropical biodiversity, promote new species discovery, and help mitigate the effects of global warming.
