Venetia joined JWP as Partnerships Director in February 2022. She contributes her knowledge and passion for nature-based and social impact travel specifically in Latin America, having lived in Buenos Aires and Costa Rica, and spent much time travelling the continent. She went to school in Lesotho, a small country within South Africa, and was involved in community projects. These spanned Zimbabwe, Kenya and South Africa and inspired her to turn her focus to Latin America where she continues to form relationships with local projects.
From a home base between London and Mallorca, Venetia is responsible for crafting travel experiences for the JWP community which leave a positive impact on them and the places they visit, in equal measure.
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 cultural identity 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.
