Magdalena Mossbrucker


Magdalena was born in Germany, but grew up all over Latin America. In 2016, after completing her bachelor’s degree in Biology at Justus-Liebig-University in Germany, she came to the Galapagos to volunteer with the Sharks Project. In 2019, after completing her master’s degree in Marine Biology at Stockholm University in Sweden, she rejoined the sharks team as a volunteer. Her tasks include assisting in data collection while in the field and analyzing video footage collected at Darwin and Wolf islands in previous years. Magdalena will also write a paper describing new registers of sharks and rays in the Galapagos.
