Felix was born and raised in Sabinito, a pueblo just 10 miles east of Alamos. He began working for NCI in 2006. He supervises the team of rangers, helps implement the reserve’s conservation objectives, leads trips to the field, and facilitates the work of visiting researchers. As a child, Felix worked with his father, raising cattle and growing staple crops of corn, beans, tomatoes, and squash. These skills and knowledge of the landscape acquired from his father are fundamental to the work he does today.
