Every Little Counts (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla)


Every Little Counts (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla)

There are many ways to adopt a proactive attitude towards understanding our environment focused on making with our actions an improvement in the state of our symbiotic coexistence.

Some of us try our best with research and communication. Others with hand-on initiatives addressing physical localised environmental issues.

The level of attention grasped by all those actions, either by independent researchers like me, or by those local groups taking matters into their hands, is mostly minimal and very often passes unnoticed in the fast paced world full of exchanges of information in the major leagues.

So I want to pay tribute to all those individuals, groups and small entities making their best with the little they have.

I want to use this post to offer my little space in the media to increase the level of exposure that it deserves the activity carried by local groups around the world, and use one in particular as example, from my nearest coast in Galicia-Spain.

The Association is called “Mar de Fabula“.

Mar de Fábula is a non-profit organization focused on cleaning the sea.

To meet this goal, they promote the removal of all the marine litter left at the seaside by the storms, by the currents and by the solid spillage from land-based sources to prevent it from returning to the sea. They carry out this work all around the year.

Time ago I exchanged some messages in this blog with one of the Co-founders of the Association, Xose Manuel Barros, in relation with a publication which I focused on discussing the state of the Oceans and the interference from plastics over its function as climatic regulator:

Next 21st July 2016 this association will help up a meeting at the CEIDA in Oleiros, A Coruña (Spain). So I want to make my contribution by recognising their effort with this publication and acknowledge what they represent.

You can visit their website in the following link. For those of you close in location you can have access to information about the meeting here.

More guidance on citing this web as a source can be found at NASA webpage: http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/bibliography/citations#! DOIs can be generated on demand by request at email: d.fdezsevilla(at)gmail.com for those publications missing at the ResearchGate profile vinculated with this project. **Author´s profile: Born in 1974. Bachelor in General Biology, Masters degree "Licenciado" in Environmental Sciences (2001, Spain). PhD in Aerobiology (2007, UK). Lived, acquired training and worked in Spain, UK, Germany and Poland. I have shared the outcome from my work previous to 2013 as scientific speaker in events held in those countries as well as in Switzerland and Finland. After 12 years performing research and working in institutions linked with environmental research and management, in 2013 I found myself in a period of transition searching for a new position or funding to support my own line of research. In the current competitive scenario, in order to demonstrate my capacities instead of just moving my cv waiting for my next opportunity to arrive, I decided to invest my energy and time in opening my own line of research sharing it in this blog. In March 2017 the budget reserved for this project has ended and its weekly basis time frame discontinued until new forms of economic and/or institutional support are incorporated into the project. The value of the data and the original nature of the research presented in this platform and at LinkedIn has proved to be worthy of consideration by the scientific community as well as for publication in scientific journals. However, without a position as member of an institution, it becomes very challenging to be published. I hope that this handicap do not overshadow the value of my achievements and that the Intellectual Property Rights generated with the license of attribution attached are respected and considered by the scientist involved in similar lines of research. **Any comment and feedback aimed to be constructive is welcome as well as any approach exploring professional opportunities to be part of.** In this blog I publish pieces of research focused on addressing relevant environmental questions. Furthermore, I try to break the barrier that academic publications very often offer isolating scientific findings from the general public. In that way I address those topics which I am familiar with, thanks to my training in environmental research, making them available throughout my posts. (see "Framework and Timeline" for a complete index). At this moment, 2017, I am living in Spain with no affiliation attachments. Free to relocate geographically worldwide. If you feel that I could be a contribution to your institution, team and projects don´t hesitate in contact me at d.fdezsevilla (at) gmail.com or consult my profile at LinkedIn, ResearchGate and Academia.edu. Also, I'd appreciate information about any opportunity that you might know and believe it could match with my aptitudes.
