He studied Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires and worked in the Department of Transference of Scientific Knowledge of the Bariloche Foundation. When the Exxon Valdéz spilled 10.8 million US gallons of oil in Alaska, he was in charge of translating and adapting to the Southern Cone of America the first Emergency Response manual for the oil industry. Aldo worked as consultant on Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility; and he was part of the team that released Captain Paul Watson from criminal charges in Costa Rica. His respect for nature as a mountaineer and diver led him to apply his scientific and communication skills to the protection of marine and terrestrial resources and to be co-founder in Costa Rica of the For the Oceans foundation.
You can protect threatened ocean wildlife and their habitats with a monthly donation to For The Oceans. We are thrilled to have recently acquired our first sailing vessel dedicated to educating youth about ocean conservation as well as cleaning up plastic debris. Your support of our oceans is needed now to enable us to secure a second vessel to begin patrolling Costa Rican waters to stop illegal and unregulated fishing. PLEASE DONATE TODAY!
