Nature is future
Who am I?
I am fascinated about nature since I can remember. When I became aware about the ecosystem destruction and biodiversity loss that Earth is facing, I decided to stop it. I, then, became a conservationist, and I have specialized in herbivore-ecosystem interactions to improve ecosystem resilience by trophic rewilding. I also love science divulgation among non-scientific people to share all the knowledge I can. My aim is to work in trophic rewilding and work in science divulgation around all Europe.
