Coordinator of Observadores del Mar and marine conservation ecologist at Institut de Ciències del Mar-CSIC
“Nature will go on with or without us but if we want to continue living on this planet, we must work with it and not against it.”
Joaquim Garrabou looks under the sea to find nature-based solutions to climate change. The marine conservation ecologist’s work focuses on adaptation plans for coastal areas as well as sustainable uses of marine resources, giving a voice to the ‘silent world’ that’s fighting to survive below the surface. With Observadores del Mar (‘Sea Watchers’) he unleashes the power of citizen science for marine conservation.
