Santiago Botero

Database Manager, Living Lakes Canada


Santiago grew up in Ecuador, creating a fond love for nature through hiking, camping, and adventuring in the heart of the Andes. Santiago then moved to Toronto, where he gained experience working with people and technology. The call of the mountains and love for nature brought Santiago to British Columbia, where he is working towards a career in environmental science, conservation, and geospatial technology. Santiago graduated from the Integrated Environmental Planning Technology program at Selkirk College in 2019 and is currently entering his last year of a bachelor’s degree in Geographic Information Systems. He is also taking the required courses to one day register as a Professional Biologist in British Columbia. Santiago is passionate about people, nature, and technology, and believes in harmony between them all. As the new Database Manager for Living Lakes Canada, he is excited to combine his passions, and help make a difference in protecting his local, and all watersheds.
