Andrea Bonilla Garzón

Colombia,Antarctica

Humpback whales (HW) in the Eastern South Pacific migrate each year from high latitudes, where they feed, to low latitudes close to equator, where they breed, forming a management unit called G stock (GS). HW that feed in the Antarctic Peninsula breed in Colombian waters. Historically international effort has studied the biology, ecology, and genetics of this stock.

Turkey,Greece

Our previous work highlighted the importance of north Levantine Sea in the entire eco-system of the Mediterranean Basin. The current project builds on these previous knowledge with additional survey techniques as in acoustic surveys with community involvement.

Kenya

The International Energy Agency in 2009 predicted a 40% global increase for energy demand in the next two decades. Considering unstable oil prices, increasing emission of greenhouse gases, and global warming, there is an urgent need for alternative, clean and reliable energy. Wind power is one of the most adopted alternative sources of renewable energy in developing regions.

Kenya

The increasing utilization of forest products puts pressure to the Tana River Mangabey (Cercocebus galeritus) population and its habitat. The project will target selected riverine forest fragments within the Tana River Primate National Reserve (TRPNR), which are utilized by the local communities.

Peru

This project focuses on river dolphin bycatch, specifically on estimating its frequency while working to mitigate its occurrence in the Peruvian Amazon. The use of acoustic alarms (pingers) has been shown to reduce bycatch rates of marine cetaceans.

Kenya,Tanzania

Biodiversity has been decreasing worldwide owing to increase in human population, encroachment into protected areas and other developments (Loveridge et al., 2010). Therefore, conservation of wildlife especially animals with large home range such as lion has been a challenge (Trinkel, 2013).

Montenegro

Adriatic Sea is home to five cetacean species, classified at risk by IUCN; bottlenose, striped and Risso’s dolphins, Cuvier’s beaked whales and fin whales. Our studies since 2016, underlined the presence of resident bottlenose and striped dolphins in Montenegro.

Argentina,Chile

Recent global warming and severe droughts have caused decline and forest mortality worldwide. In addition, climatic models predict that these extreme events will be more severe and frequent in the next decades. Nonetheless, tree physiological mechanisms under drought conditions and the key drivers inducing tree decline are still poorly understood.

Argentina

The aim of this project is to contribute to a better understanding of ecosystem service (ES) supply and potential for preserving native medium-large mammals of silvopastoral systems in the Dry Chaco. We will focus in Argentinean provinces of Catamarca, San Luis, Salta and Santiago del Estero to evaluate ES related with forest structure and functioning (e.g.
