Globally, more than 300 million people depend on the ecosystem services that coral reefs provide, for their livelihoods and food security. The risk of an extinction of the reefs in the world is real and this requires urgent and rapid actions to reduce global warming. In order to fight the effects of climate change on the GBR, different marine authorities are conducting researches and experiments with the aim of finding a solution for the protection and the safeguard of the reefs of the world. Securing biodiversity and ecosystems for future generations is not a chance, but our duty.

Since I was a child, photography is always been my deepest passion. Photography is emotion, is the opportunity to show hidden faceting of the world in which we live, raising awareness about complicated issues around the world. Today I'm committed that I must use the power of photography combining the social and the environmental sphere in order to show to the people how we are strictly related to our natural environment, and how our daily behavior or way of thinking is impacting our lives. Since 2016 I'm collaborating with international magazines such as Mare, VSD, Washington Post among others
