Richard Knab

Richard Knab has focused his attention on education, conservation and sustainable development in Latin America since serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras (1987-1990), where he worked with small farmers on soil conservation, irrigation and cooperative-related projects. Following Masters studies at the University of Pennsylvania, he began a 10-year stint with Zamorano University in Honduras in various capacities related to project development, fundraising, institutional communications, and strategic planning. Richard has worked with Galapagos Conservancy since 2004 and coordinates our Sustainable Society program and fundraises for all of our programs. He is particularly passionate about opportunities in Galapagos to strengthen formal and non-formal education, civil society, and citizen engagement in conservation. He is pleased to be able to work closely with several Zamorano graduates that he met as students, in particular Carlos Zapata (founder and president of FUNDAR Galapagos) and Orazio Belettinni (founder and president of Grupo Faro).
