Meet the Guides: Diane DiGravio of Eco Outreach International

DianeDigravioDiane is a science educator in New York State and the co-owner of EcoOutreach International.  She spent  10 years as a Research Scientist working for leaders in the pharmaceutical industry prior to entering the world of education.   Diane possesses a strong desire to share with others that the results of critical thinking and analyzing within the sciences are endless, and that anyone can be responsible for the many advancements in science and technology if they are up for the challenge.  

During her teaching career, Diane led large groups of students to Central America where they were able to participate in conservation and preservation efforts.  She feels honored to be able to share some of her most profound experiences with her students to demonstrate just how severe humans have impacted a variety of species and their ecosystems. Given the state of our most fragile habitats and the rapid decline of a variety of species, this educator saw a desperate need to open eyes and to take action on a much larger scale.  Combining her methods of education with her desire to make change, Diane is proud to introduce “Eco Outreach International.”

Diane and her partner started Eco Outreach International to provide visitors with the best ecological experience during their stay.  As nature enthusiasts, their goal is to expose clients to a variety of habitats which are rich in biodiversity and to educate them as to why we must conserve what little remains here on Earth.

Ecosystems have become severely impacted by evolving societies which has resulted in a variety of species becoming threatened, endangered and in some cases, extinct.  Their guides, who are local biologists and native to the destination areas, provide clients with the most authentic education of surrounding habitats and discuss the most current methods of what is being done to preserve and restore remaining populations of both plants and animals. 

Diane hopes to expose as many people as possible to this incredible nature and to create an awareness for making change.  As believers in change and that younger generations hold the key to a better future, she has created the most competitive packages allowing the chance for more visitors to become involved in our programs.  Packages are tailored to meet the needs of student groups, families, couples, bird enthusiasts or individuals looking to get away to connect with nature. We look forward to educating and captivating you with the most unique nature while leaving you with lifelong memories.
