David Cardenas

Technical Assistant

David has always liked to explore nature, its richness, and its importance as a source of life. His passion for protecting and conserving nature motivated him to study Environmental Biotechnology at the Chimborazo Polytechnic School (ESPOCH). It prompted him to research the "Assessment of carbon concentration on mangrove sediments on two islands of the Galapagos archipelago" to conserve its ecosystem services and mitigate the footprint of human activities on the islands. As a Technical Assistant for the Galapagos Verde 2050 (GV2050) program, David expects to use his skills in plant mapping, recording and management of environmental data, carbon sequestration of endemic species in various study sites framed in the seven research projects of GV2050, including the conservation support of the terrestrial ecosystems of the islands, and their essential preservation and restoration for sustainable development.
