Madona Berumen is from Tijuana, Mexico, and is currently based in NYC.

She pursued a Master’s in Ethology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, focusing on pica and its relationship with animal welfare in companion animals. Since a young age, she has been passionate about animals and started watching how pigeons behave; this was her first approach to ethology. She is particularly interested in animal behavior, animal welfare, anthrozoology, and climate change.
Currently, she collaborates at two dog shelters in New York City.
