Longtime Volunteer is New Forest Biologist
Few UB ERI volunteers and student assistants have been as dedicated to our work as Denver Cayetano. Today, it is with great pleasure that we introduce him in his new capacity as our Forest Biologist under the Darwin Initiative Sustainable Forestry Project.
Denver is a graduate of the Natural Resource Management program at the University of Belize and no stranger to the Institute. During his undergraduate program he volunteered on a regular basis before filling the position of Publications Assistant. Always willing to assist with any of our ongoing projects, he continued to volunteer his time up until his recent appointment. “I am delighted to be joining the UB ERI once again and to be able to contribute to the great work it has been doing especially in regards to Forest Ecology and Management,” said Denver.
He is also an active conservationist who has been involved with research on regeneration ecology and silviculture, and the influences of logging. He joins us after completing a 6 month Forest Management Internship with the Yalbac Cattle Ranch and Corporation, an opportunity provided by the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas and a consortium of universities and organizations in the forestry sector including the UB ERI.
As Forest Biologist, his main focus will be on the installation and monitoring of intensive census plots with the aim of contributing to research on carbon allocation, and cycling of tropical forests as a part of the Global Ecosystems Monitoring Network.
