Since an early age, the contact with “her” mountains and with the animal kingdom has been strong, deep and sincere. After working in the veterinary clinical field, she becomes Environmental Guide for AIGAE Abruzzo. She collaborates with the Sirente Velino Park, as a Coornata Guide in the Life Coornata project, for the protection of the Apennine chamois. She has carried out small environmental education projects for some municipalities and small businesses in the Marsica area. She takes part in voluntary wildlife population counts and animates for children, and loves writing fairy tales, painting and devoting herself to manual activities. One of her greatest desires is to protect, make known and respect every form of life. She firmly believes in the protection of the Marsican brown bear as a voluntary, common and cohesive action.
Born in Sora (Frosinone) in 1978, Luca has always been fond of nature and animals. He got a degree in Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pisa in 2005. Soon after, he started working in the sector of medicine and surgery of domestic animals in a Vet Clinic in Viterbo province, where he stayed for 5 years. In the meantime, he attended several specialist training courses in different branches of the vet medicine. In 2010, back to Sora, he collaborated for a few years with a vet ambulatory in the area. In the last years, moved by a deep passion for animals and environmental protection, he took many training courses about wildlife and the Marsican brown bear.

He has collaborated and is still collaborating with the Vet Service of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park and with some Nature Reserves in Abruzzo.
