I have been fortunate to be educated with values that instilled in me the love go volunteering from a very young age.
My journey in conserving the oceans and the environment began a little later. I've always been passionate about nature, animals and the ocean. But it wasn't until the beginning of college and the emergence of social media in my life, when I began to be really aware that everything I loved was disappearing in my eyes...
I spend most of my time in the water. The sea is a big part of me. I realized I couldn't find any beach that wasn't full of micro plastics, Fishing nets or other marine debris. So I started to investigate. All of a sudden, all my projects were focused on this problem.
I am not proud to say that we are the first generation to feel the effects of our mistakes, but I am proud to know that we can do something about it to restore the well-being of ourselves and of future generations.
The power to change things is still in our hands. If we act now.
These are some of the projects in which I have participated
"From knowledge comes understanding, and from understanding comes change"
I am not a marine biologist. I am a girl who found love for the sea and saw firsthand the damage we are doing ourselves.
One of my goals as a photographer is to raise people’s awareness of environmental issues, and to provide resources and tools so that they can create a change in their lives, make informed decisions and cultivate awareness of these issues to make a positive impact on the planet.
Life on Earth depends directly on the oceans.
The effects of human life and unsustainable fishing, pollution and climate change have been affecting our seas and oceans for years.
We need to raise awareness of its importance, because if we continue to degrade the oceans, marine ecological systems will collapse.
This would directly affect the health of the planet, and therefore our health.
We need more people to join the movement.
Here are some of the reasons for its importance:
- They produce about 70% of the oxygen we breathe
- They play a key role in climate regulation.
- They influence the most important meteorological phenomena.
- They provide drinking water for all living beings
- It is home to whales, sharks, turtles..., in addition to hundreds of thousands of other species, many of them endangered.
Here I leave you a link to the WhatsApp group where you can find out about events and cleanings that I organize as well as other environmentally friendly organizations :)
I also talk to you about some organizations and how you can collaborate with them.
We are a non-profit organization focused on developing action projects, education and environmental awareness to promote respect and care for the environment. Through our actions, we want to raise awareness and educate about the main environmental challenges, and generate a social movement that prioritizes the well-being of the planet and that of all its inhabitants.
Good Karma Projects has been documenting and investigating the appearance of plastic pellets on the beaches of Tarragona since 2018. In 2021 I had the opportunity to accompany them on one of their expeditions to document this problem still invisible to many. #ChasingPelletsExpedition
