Jane Mauro


I’m a marine biologist, DSc, and have been working in the biodiversity field for more than 15 years. Living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I have always devoted my life to our beloved nature.

I’ve been a vegetarian for 15 years now and I’m in transition to veganism it’s been six months. Mother of a human kid and three cute cats, I love sports, the arts and travels to unusual destinations.

PS: Yes, I hugged a sloth! When I met her, she had been rescued by researchers from the Federal University of Amazonas, Brazil.
