Josh Klaus

Enthusiastic about experiential education, cross-cultural interaction, international conservation, and small-business development, Josh works with U.S. and international teachers and student groups to create life-changing learning opportunities through Ecology Project International (EPI).  He oversees a field program in the Galápagos Islands and is responsible for generating the majority of EPI’s revenue.  Previously, Josh studied ecology at the School for International Training in Quito, taught elementary school in Oakland, California, and coordinated logistics for a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador program in Cuba.  He holds a M.Sc, in Environmental Studies, a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and International Studies, and is a licensed teacher. When not pursuing his love for the Spanish language and traveling in Latin America, Josh spends his free time crooning Dylan covers with his blue Bolivian guitar, rock climbing, working in the garden, or backpacking in the wilds of western Montana.  Current projects include improving his hunting skills, growing a year’s supply of garlic, learning Portuguese, and officiating a few weddings this summer.
