Bianka Martinez

A true Chicagoan down to the marrow, Bianka Isabella Martinez is a black latina whose passions include conservation, stewardship, and the preservation of the natural world. Having grown up in the Midwest she thirsted for the perfect balance of an urban community with an escape into the beaten path.

She completed Undergraduate studies August of 2018, with a concentration on natural biology and ecology. Her passion for ecology and conservation drove her into a field where she's able to balance stewardship, and education because she believes that the next generation plays a crucial part in shaping the future of the natural spaces in the world. Her goal is to transform others into lifelong learners with a passion for the outdoors and to see more people of color and queer people pick up the passion for the outdoor along the way. On her free time she indulges in reading, herping, rugby, and activism
