Patrizia Patti

Founder - Marine Biologist

I'm a marine biologist, and I've worked out at sea with marine life giving institutional tour and lectures.My dream has always been to keep in touch with the sea and its creatures. Now I want to share my passion and knowledge with people to create awareness and respect for the ecosystem. Small steps that can lead to great results. I started working with Tethys Research Institute when I began to collect data for my thesis: Aspects of the ecology of sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) in the western Ligurian Sea I worked in Newfoundland (Canada) in a research project on the Food behaviour of humpback whales’ population. I worked as a dive guide and manager of environmental education projects in the Maldives and the Red Sea.
In 2013 I co-founded Costa Balenae whale and nature watching. I have been Responsible for Costa Balenae whale and nature watching’s environmental education for schools and the biologist on board during whale watching tours. My experience my love for the marine ecosystem, but above all, the need to do something to defend and protect the marine ecosystem has motivated me to be part of this natural preservation through green eco tourism also here in Malta with Eco Marine Tour. I love Maltese islands and their incredible biodiversity, we have to protect and preserve.

Serena Lagorio

Marine biologist

My name is Serena, I am 26 years old I am a marine biologist and future oceanographer. I love the sea since I was very young. When I started university, I immediately became a volunteer on whale watching tours in the Ligurian Sea, therefore I did my master thesis in the Tyrrhenian Sea and I studied the acoustic of Sperm whales social units. Then, I lived in the Philippines for a couple of months and I worked in a Cetaceans experience in the ocean. In this moment I am currently living in Malta and I start to collaborate with Eco marine tour because I want to help sharing the experience with Marine Mammals and educate the future generations on the importance of the marine ecosystem preservation. The sea and the oceans are my decision of life!
