By Aaron Humes: Tuesday was Earth Day and the venerable National Geographic Magazine recognized individuals working around the world in conservation.
One of those is National Geographic Photo Ark ZSL EDGE of Existence Fellow Jamal Galves who has cared about manatee conservation since he was 11 years old. As a marine biologist, he is working to save these gentle giants that are under threat from drowning in fishing nets and collisions with boats in Belize.
In the accompanying video, Galvez insists, “Change is going to come and someone has to do it. Why can’t I be that someone?”
He says he has been an explorer from the age of 11 and protecting manatees has become more than a job to him.
We wish Galves every future success.
