Marysol is the Director of the fabulous Guadalupe Island Biosphere Reserve off the Western Coast of Mexico. The island is the home to many endemic species include sea lions, white sharks, cyprus, pine tree and the black-footed albatross, and a fishing village of 180 people. Marysol talks about how for many years, people came from all over the world to hunt the seal lions and brought many species with them. The introduced species are gradually being exterminated and the native environment is recovering.
Marysol talks about what her role involves and some of the great successes her team has had in preserving this unique environment.
