Aqua Expeditions Welcomes Juan Diaz Alvan as Its New Community Outreach Manager

Aqua Expeditions has a strong commitment to identifying and helping to meet the needs of local communities in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, where it operates the M/V Aqua. To underscore that commitment, Founder and Chief Executive Officer Francesco Galli-Zugaro appointed Juan Díaz Alván to the newly created position of Community Outreach Manager.

Mr. Díaz Alván is a biologist who specializes both in working with communities in protected areas, as well as in the study of Amazon birds. He will manage relationship-building between Aqua Expeditions and 14 local riverside communities, and will also work with the leadership of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve and other institutions related to tourism and environmental conservation in Amazonia. He is a graduate of Universidad Nacional de la Amazonía Peruana (UNAP).

Welcome aboard, Juan!
