Janire Salazar

Graduate in Biology, with a Master’s Degree in Oceanography and Marine Environmental Management (Barcelona, Spain). For her master’s degree dissertation, she searched for the spatial distribution patterns of Antarctic gorgonians in the Weddell sea. She is actively involved in both research projects and science dissemination and is a member of the team «El mar a fons» (“The sea in depth”), where she develops educational resources.

Due to the extreme environmental conditions of the Antarctic continental shelf – its distance from other continents, depth, and the weight of the continental ice – it offers us a great opportunity to better understand how a pristine ecosystem would normally be.
