Hey there! I’m Marlina, aka “Mar”, and if you haven’t already guessed it, I’m the gal behind Mar Gone Wild.
I’m a former NFL cheerleader & professional dancer turned conservation biologist, filmmaker and, of course, wildlife-lovin’ travel blogger (random I know, but I’ll explain in a bit).
When I first got the idea to start Mar Gone Wild I simply saw it as a fun way to keep my family and friends up-to-date on my wild adventures and work in the conservation arena. Today, the mission is a lil’ bit bigger than that, which you can read more about HERE.
How I become the Mar in Mar Gone Wild is a slightly longer story. . .
For anyone interested, you can read all about my personal and professional journey below (embarrassing childhood pics included).
