Andrea Chanove Manrique

I am Andrea Chanove, from Peru, an animal and plants lover. I became an environmental scientist to know how can I help improving the negative impacts done against our nature. However, it wasn’t enough for me, what else could I do? I went to Brazil as a volunteer in a NGO, where I learned a lot about environmental technologies and environmental education. When I returned to Peru I continued working in environmental management and education. Years later I won a scholarship from the government, so I had opportunity to study a master in ecosystems restoration in Spain. During my master my passion to contribute with the planet grew every day, even more after doing a group work where we proposed a children education activity by disguising ourselves as fish and dragonflies to show their importance in our rivers. I found out about World Fish Migration Foundation and the importance of educating about the migration of fish and how it is affected by rivers’ contamination and construction of an inordinate amount of weirs ad dams. That is why I wish to collaborate with the foundation and be part of this important environmental initiative.
