Vice President - Menkab: the breath of the sea

Researcher and marine biologist with the association "Menkab, the breath of the sea." During his Ph.D. in marine science, he conducted a population genetics project on sperm whales to assess the degree of connectivity between the Mediterranean and Atlantic populations. He has studied cetaceans not only in the Mediterranean but also in the Atlantic Ocean, as a whale watching biologist in the Azores Islands, and in the Indian Ocean, where he recorded the songs of humpback whales during the breeding season. In recent years, with the Menkab Association and the University of Genoa, he has monitored and reconstructed the routes of "Visitors": cetaceans sighted in the Ligurian Sea and coming from the Atlantic Ocean.
