Joaquin de la Torre Ponce

Joaquin has a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, a Diploma in Crisis Communications and Advanced Training in Emotional Marketing. Since his childhood, he was always inquisitive about animals and nature. Just after college, he volunteered in World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Toronto’s office. In 2004, he joined the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) as Communications Coordinator for Latin America, supporting global/regional campaigns on animal welfare and environmental care issues.  He also worked for Oxfam Great Britain as Regional Communications Officer for Latin America, where he broadened his communication skills in social and humanitarian issues. After more than 10 years of experience in the non-profit field of communications, Joaquin is currently IFAW’s Companion Animal Project Manager for Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Mayan Riviera. He is also a communications advisor for the Healthy Reefs Initiative to promote coral reef conservation and is a Fellow Leader for the 2011 Mesoamerican Reef Leadership Program from the Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature. Joaquin lives in Playa del Carmen with Erika and his family of four dogs, two cats and one ferret all adopted or rescued from the streets, plus the frequent foster dog or wild creature.
