Project M.A.R.E. 2019: Meet our team

Here we are, starting from the left:

DANIELS: Hi, I come from the northwest of Latvia and I’m very excited to be here. As I grew up in the country side, I am very passionate about nature. I learned how to respect and love the nature working with my grandfather, who is a beekeeper. I joined this project to widen my horizons and I’m looking forward to work in the park with this amazing team.

ÉRICA: I’m a Portuguese girl with the dream of living in the sea. And what is better than do it in Italy? Such a beautiful country with a lot of nature to explore, either in land and underwater. We started our adventure in Massa Lubrense with pizza (of course), some trainings about volunteering and mentoring, exploring Campania by hiking, sharing a bit of our countries and with a beach cleaning in “our” beach for the next 9 months, that we hope to change it to a better place. I’m really happy to be here and to be part of the Project M.A.R.E., helping to improve our nature and sharing its beauties with the people.

LIDIJA: Hello everyone! One Serbian girl starting to work in your beautiful bay. Even if my country doesn’t have sea, that didn’t stop me to participate in this project and upgrade my marine knowledge. I live in a small town near the capital city, Belgrade, and I have been studied biology in the university of Novi Sad. Feeling honored for getting the chance to be part of your beautiful country and this big M.A.R.E family in the next 9 months.

LAURA: I’m the Spanish girl of the Project! I came from a small city in the north-west of Spain, called A Coruña. I knew about the project some months ago and I totally fell in love with it. The first two weeks here went so well: we did some hiking and we had some trainings related with the Project. The group of volunteers and the people from the Park are really nice and we are doing a lot of team building. Next week we will start the Italian lessons! I’m really happy and I’m looking forward to live this adventure! 

ETIENNE: Hello everyone, so I’m Etienne from Reunion Island and I’m 21 years old! I heard about this project through a friend and I fell in love very quickly. I am proud to be a volunteer and to share my culture, passion and ecological ideas with my team. Here, even I am thousands of kilometers away from my island, I feel like at home. Close to the nature and the sea I know that nothing can stop me.

Also we would like to present to you three more persons very important for us:

ALA – the Tunisian volunteer who is not here with us yet, but who will join us soon!

Andrew – an US intern in the Park

Antonio – a Biology student and a friend of the Project M.A.R.E.

We invite you to follow us during the next 9 month. We promise that we are going to share a lot about our beautiful adventure.
