Felix García Caballero was born and raised in Sabinito, a pueblo about 10 miles east of Alamos. He began working for Reserva Monte Mojino (ReMM) in 2006. Over that time, he has taken on more responsibilities and is now Head of Field Operations. He supervises the stewardship team, helps implement ReMM’s conservation objectives, leads field trips, and facilitates the field work of visiting researchers. As a child, Felix began working with his father, raising cattle and growing staple crops of corn, beans, tomatoes, and squash. These skills and knowledge of the landscape acquired from his father are fundamental to the work he does today. Felix is married to Margarita Gutierrez Rubí, and they have four children: Marisol, Lizette Guadalupe, Carlos Alfredo, and José Miguel. Margarita is an excellent with needlework and is part of the group of Sabinito women who create and sell embroidery, often with nature themes, as part of the pueblo’s eco-tourism efforts. Felix, along with Alejandro Sauceda, participated in the Sonoran Joint Venture Bird Guide Program in 2009. With additional mentoring from professional bird tour guide David MacKay, Felix and Alejandro have become skilled and enthusiastic bird observers.
