Fernando Diaz graduated from the University of Arizona in 2020, where he developed a passion for birds and conservation. An internship for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service inspired him to pursue a career as a conservation biologist for the USFWS full-time. Since graduating, he has been working seasonal positions focused in restoration, conservation, and wildlife. Fernando is excited to work at the Corn Creek Visitor’s Center to further develop his skillset, meet new people, and promote the wildlife conservation.
