Inspired by her great interest in protecting biodiversity, Carolina did studies in biology and environmental management. As it happened, it was her fear of spiders, when she was still very young, that awakened her curiosity and led her to explore their mysterious world. Through contact with them, not only was she introduced to the astonishing world of arachnids, but she also discovered her true passion. Carolina joined the Insectarium’s scientific-animation team in 2009, for the Butterflies Go Free event, and then the educational-activity design team in 2012. As enthusiastic as ever about biodiversity, she’s delighted to share secrets of the arthropods with visitors.
