Virginie Poly

Guide

I am from La Rochelle. I have a degree in Biology and an International Master in Applied Ecology and Ecosystem Management. I am passionate about marine turtles ever since my internships in Mayotte and Greece.

I came to Tetiaroa for the first time as a volunteer for Te Mana for the 2016-2017 turtle nesting season. When the season was over, I returned to Greece as a project manager for an international volunteer camp, working for the conservation of loggerhead turtles.

I came back to Tetiaroa two months ago as a volunteer for Te Mana, and decided to apply for the position of nature guide with TS. I've always been intrigued by the profession of nature guide, and I am happy to say that I've been working at TS since the beginning of December.
