His academic experience took him through a BSc in Environmental Science and MSc in Conservation and International Cooperation for Development where he learned that without a healthy environment there is not human development. Ever since he has been getting involved in projects where a new approach on the relationship between nature and people is needed. His expertise goes from ecosystem restoration and endangered species management to coral reef monitoring in places like Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Morocco and Philippines. Javier arrives at Blue Ventures as a Field Scientist in our Expeditions programme.
