Zoologist Jorge Ventocilla has a whole life dedicated to the understanding and conservation of the fauna and flora. In the various facets in which his love for nature manifests itself, one of the most outstanding is that of communicator, and writer, being author or coauthor of the books “¡Cebaco!: La historia de la isla de Cebaco, contada por sus habitantes”, “El espíritu de la Tierra: Plantas y animales en la vida del pueblo kuna”, “Animales y plantas de la ciudad de Panamá, una guía para 80 especies”, among others.
