Engineer, I spent 9 years of my life in Latin America in very diverse fields of activity. From now on 7 years I live in Ecuador (Quito) and dedicate myself to development projects in the Indian communities beside of which I learned to develop another vision of the world, more open and tolerant. It is all this that I want to share with you as guide.
Anne Brukhanoff – Chief mission Latitud Sur Peru
I have decided to collaborate in the conservation projects of the traditions and the amazonian cultures. I assure the estate management of the boat ” Selva Viva “. I also guide the Latitud Sur cruises on the rivers of Amazonia to assure the logistics and the comfort of the passengers. My interest for the native cultures is not recent and I like the idea to be able to share their knowledge with respect and tolerance teachings.

My goal: improve the respect and the understanding of our ecosystems to protect our natural heritage. My favorite playground: the rainforest.
I’ve always been apasionate for Latin America, so I studied languages and cultural tourism, before I decide to leave France in order to dedicate myself to solidary and sustainable tourism projects abroad, and this is how the wind brought me to Iquitos and the NGO Latitud Sur. Our actions are full of human values, in the respect of the traditions and the local ecosystems, in order to promote the ethnocultural and environmental diversity of this region of the planet that’s only expects you to come and discover it. Passion, energy and solidarity are the main words of our team !
