Alexandra Zamecnik, Executive Director

Alexandra has more than 20 years of leadership and management experience working on conservation and natural resources management with extensive experience in Mexico and Central America. She is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion and has developed several programs for the inclusion and professional development of women of color.

Through her experiences with different organizations and as a facilitator, she has successfully formed partnerships with multilateral organizations, federal and state governments, NGOs, local communities and academia to promote local conservation outcomes.

She has a B.A. in International Relations from Boston University and an M.A. focused in International Environment and Resource Policy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

Her passion for conservation was borne out of growing up between two cultures with a mother from Argentina and a father from Boston. Since she was a child, she has returned to Cordoba, Argentina and has witnessed how land-use, land ownership and stewardship, and cultural practices are easily lost if they are not actively conserved.
