Hi! I’m Nuno Curado.
I am a wildlife ecologist and nature enthusiast
The last 12 years I have been working with wildlife and people, in different organizations and in my own businesses.
I started out in the deep countryside,
then became fascinated by urban wildlife
In my early career, I worked towards the protection of endangered wildlife – lynxes, vultures, and eagles - and the places they live in. This entailed countless hours engaging with landowners, farmers, and other stakeholders.
However, I became increasingly captivated by the wildlife that lives in our cities. How do wild animals and plants live in urban areas? How do we, humans, benefit from it? How can we make our cities better for people and nature?
My dedication to urban wildlife
– for nature and people
Still in Portugal, I created my own business: I organized workshops about urban biodiversity and provided advice on the ecological management of urban areas. I organized birdwatching sessions in city parks and co-created a children’s environmental education program.
And most of all, I love exploring city parks, river banks, even walls and buildings in search of wildlife.
