Diego Pérez

In 2018, Diego worked on a risk assessment of marine debris entanglements in pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses) around the world to evaluate the real impact of plastics on this group of marine mammals.

Currently, Diego is finishing his Ph.D. thesis at Andrés Bello University (Santiago, Chile) on a project that seeks to evaluate pinnipeds as sentinels of plastic pollution in the marine environments.
