Marco, marine biologist



Today our intern Marco Bregoli graduated in Marine Biology at the University of Padua, Italy, with a thesis on the social organisation of bottlenose dolphins in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece. His defense was excellent and he received a 110 Cum Laude (the maximum score). We are very proud of him!
