My environmental success stories and awards

Posted by on June 25th, 2012 with 0 Comments

2016 – The Peruvian Ministry of Production prohibits the use of harpoons on fishing boats based on my reports about illegal dolphin killing in the peruvian shark fishing fleet. With this act the my work has led to the existence of a legal basis for an efective control of the illegal activity. Now its up to authorities to implement. 


2014 – An international coalition of 27 environmental NGOs awards me the title “International dolphin defender” for heroic action to save dolphins. 


2013 – Based on my undercover investigation proof was delivered that up to 15000 dolphins are killed each year illegally for bait in the peruvian shark fishing fleet. Such environmental atrocity was previously only known from rumours.
