THE INTERNATIONAL TEAM

We are united for a common goal: we want to improve the world!


We are convinced that even small steps can make the world a better place. We don't want to stand idly by and sit back and do nothing. We want to be active and leave a trace on this short journey called LIFE.  We want to LIVE.

The legend of the hummingbird

One day, as the legend goes, there was a big forest fire. All the frightened animals watched helplessly as the disaster unfolded. Only the little hummingbird was active, picking up a few drops with its beak to throw onto the fire. After a moment, the armadillo, annoyed by this ridiculous act, said, "Hummingbird! Are you crazy? You won't be able to put out the fire with a few drops of water! "

And the hummingbird replied, "I know, but I'm doing my part."

Amerindian legend.

Who am I? 

I want to move mountains, action is my favorite word. It's better to look for alternatives and solutions than to just see problems.


What fulfills me?

I love to travel and learn about other cultures, but most of all to experience nature. My inner drive is to help those who are in trouble, whether they are animals or people. The phrase I have heard most often in my life: "You are not Mother Mary Teresa of Calcutta" (no kidding :)

Who am I?

I am a person who loves nature and I think that all living beings deserve respect.

I love being close to nature, living with animals, helping others, creating things and generally living in peace with myself and my environment.

Full member

Resident in Spain

Spanish nationality.

My role in the foundation:

Traductor for the website and social media posts.


Who am I?

I am extremely sensitive. There are very few movies that don't bring tears to my eyes. The people I meet usually describe me as friendly, kind, curious and respectful, to which I would add dreamer or "Quixote" as we say here in Spain.


What fulfills me?

I love nature in all its forms and I am passionate about traveling and immersing myself in other cultures. When I travel, it is usually to natural places and projects that I find interesting. I love immersing myself in other cultures, meeting their people and understanding how they see life, their hobbies, their concerns, their dreams.... I like to get lost in the most hidden corners, get tips from the locals, walk, observe, sit and take the time to enjoy their colors, their smells, their sensations and their tastes and return home taking a part of that place and its culture.

Management of sponsors and legal counsel.


Who am I?

I am a sensitive person, some would say a little too sensitive sometimes. But it is above all my strength. The joys are amplified like each emotion. I am generous, spontaneous and I have this little grain of madness of which I am proud today.


What fulfills me?

The little pleasures of life, from the sunshine to the moments well surrounded by surprises, the unexpected that sometimes change a whole life. And of course, becoming a volunteer to defend animal welfare, because yes, this is part of those little pleasures of life that are priceless. All these little things merge into an ocean of well-being and that is what fills me today.

Nicole

Colaborator

Resident in England

Venezuelan nationality. 

My role in the foundation:

Web designer.


Who am I?

I have always wanted to adopt a kitten, but at home we can not have animals. This membership allows me to contribute and help.

Since I started at the Foundation not too long ago, I have tried to contribute my knowledge in both design and web, helping where I could and I hope to continue doing so.


What fulfills me?

What I love about design is the ability to turn a concept, an idea, and even a thought into matter. I want to be able to implement all the values and ideas of this wonderful foundation.
