Zorritos/Corrales rice fields

In 2019 I volunteered on a marine biology / bioversity / research / conservation project on Peru's Pacific coast based near the fishing own of Zorritos (Tumbes area) organised by Earthwatch and local non-profit Planeta Oceano. The principal focus of our project was the protection of endanerged giant manta rays.

A critical part of Planeta Oceano's work is to find ways to collaborate with the local fishing community.
