Special Recognition

Valeria Tamayo Cañadas

We would like to extend special recognition to Valeria Tamayo Cañadas for her exceptional contributions to the development of Naveducando. She created our ocean education curriculum and developed key interinstitutional relationships. She tirelessly contributed her time, talents, and positive attitude to the cause, and her efforts were fundamental to the success of our Foundation and the Galápagos Infinito programs. Thank you, Valeria.

The Salcedo Family and Yacht Samba

Naveducando would also like to recognize the exceptional generosity and gracious hospitality of the Salcedo family and the crew of their delightful yacht, Samba. As sponsors of our pilot program, they warmly welcomed our first students aboard, making our dream a reality. We were so pleased to collaborate with an organization whose steadfast commitment to sustainable tourism in Galapagos and passion for conservation has made them a role model in our community and an inspiration to us at the Naveducando Foundation. To the entire Samba family, we extend our heartfelt thanks.
