Coordination of a deep sea project of the Galapagos Marine Reserve

As a senior marine ecologist at the Charles Darwin Foundation, I coordinated the seamounts and deep waters project in the Galapagos Marine Reserve.

 

Key Elements:

  • Analysis of quantitative data and taxonomic samples collected in deep waters.
  • Consolidation of bathymetry data.
  • Assessment of ecosystem services of seamounts.
  • Organization of courses and workshops.
  • Education and social awareness.
