With a bachelors degree and a masters in zoology, a PhD in ecology and awarded the prestigious Fulbright fellowship, Donadio has returned to Argentina to study its significant native wildlife and plant species. In 2008 he received a grant from National Geographic for conserving the last of the wild, pumas and wild camelids in the semiarid landscapes of the Argentinean Andes. He received a second grant in 2018 for his work conserving the last south American ungulate migrations, the guanaco in the Andes.
Emiliano possesses a strong belief in the significance of this rare and vanishing ecosystem, and his passion for nature, married with an extensive knowledge of species restoration is the driving force behind Iberá as an exemplary destination for nature

This extraordinary wetland, the largest in Argentina, is home to 30% of the biodiversity in the country including endangered species such as the pampas and marsh deer, the maned wolf and grassland birds like the strange-tailed tyrant.
In 2005, what was to become one of the largest rewilding programs in the Americas was started, with the goal of restoring keystone species that had been extirpated from Iberá through hunting and habitat loss and were extinct in the region, the Province or, in some cases, the country.
As the rewilding program developed, the unique culture of Iberá began to recover alongside the ecosystems and natural processes, impacting a total population of 100,000 people who surround the park.
Today, Iberá stands as one of the world’s most successful ongoing conservation missions.
