Presenting our top three!

In the last two weeks, we received more than 25 nominations of people that would love to learn more about Nature Positive Tourism, and win a fully sponsored MOYO training.

It was very difficult to choose a top three as we read the heart warming applications of so many amazing nature & wildlife guides, tourism professionals and students, but we chose three passionate individuals that have the drive to create real impact with learnings from our training.

They will present themselves to you below, and you will be able to learn more about them through our Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn channels in the coming week.

Please leave a comment with your feedback, and help us choose the lucky winner next week!

Giovanni, born in Caltanissetta, Sicily, in 1983, is a nature guide and a professional in the restaurant industry. At 41 years old, he dedicates his time to exploring and protecting the natural beauties of his beloved Sicily. From a young age, he cultivated a deep connection with nature and decided to share his knowledge with others.

His professional experience ranges from guiding school groups to teaching adults, offering an engaging and educational experience to anyone wishing to explore the natural richness of the island. His work as a nature guide is not just a job, but a passion that has led him to travel far and wide across Sicily, discovering hidden corners and natural treasures.


'I'm born and raised in Lisbon's surroundings and from an early age I've started exploring nature and showing people the places I enjoyed. Fate took me to a fitness graduation and 10 years of working in gyms, indoors.

However, Nature's call was strong and I moved with my wife to Portugal's countryside to start living and working with Nature and authentic people.

This is where I'm trying to progress nowadays!'
