The research behind the news

We are Environmental Bitácora a communication medium specialized in exposing environmental problems to provide  truthful information that does not exist in traditional media 

Our notes, interviews and specials unite socio-environmental research with investigative journalism.


How was Bitácora born?

 Log History


In 2018 the idea of capturing the news that arises from the interaction of human beings with nature in a profound way was born. In 2019, during a trip to the Galapagos Islands, the name of Environmental Bitácora was born. A Logbook is the record of the ships that cross the seas and records the news of the trip. Join us!

I return to the profession of journalist, which  I began in 1998 at El Comercio, and then as a correspondent for Aljazeera, Brazilian media, among others, until 2006, which gave me the opportunity to feel the reality of South America.


From 2007 to 2010 I worked in an oil company, from 2011 to 2013 I carried out several field investigations in the Amazon and from 2013 until now I continue to work in the northern and southern Amazon of Ecuador.


What we will publish from now on are the facts that we can contrast in Ecuador and the world with a focus on environmental communication.

After more than twelve years of investigative work in the socioeconomic and environmental area, I have compiled a lot of information and anecdotes in the territory of Latin America.

Much of my work is writing and devising methodologies to ultimately communicate research findings to audiences who want to be well informed about what is happening in nature and livelihoods.

I studied agriculture, socioeconomics and policies related to sustainable development and the environment. So I like to look at the environmental political discourse and how it modifies the landscape. 

5 years ago I returned to Ecuador and made Quito my host city.
