An important quality of the places where the CEMarin Corporation carries out its studies is that they have similar characteristics, including the presence of large rivers, estuaries, mangroves and coral reefs, which allow comparative inquiry. Mainly, our indagations are carried out in Santa Marta (Caribbean Coast), Islas del Rosario (Caribbean Coast), Gulf of Urabá (Caribbean Coast) and Bahía Málaga (Pacific Coast). All these areas are located in Colombia, one of the so-called “Megadiverse Countries" of the world which possess a great richness in species of fauna and flora, ecosystems and habitats.
Although the country represents less than 1% of the Earth’s surface, it is among the first in terms of the number of endemic species: 68,7% of its surface is covered by natural ecosystems and is the first nation in the world in number of amphibian and bird species. In fact, of 70% of the biodiversity attributed to the Group of Like-Minded Megadiverse Countries (LMMC), 10% is attributed to Colombia. All these factors make it considered the second among the most biodiverse countries in the world per square kilometer and an environmental power with privileged conditions since, in addition to the aforementioned, it also has a vast marine territory in two oceans: the Atlantic and the Pacific.
However, the failure to take advantage of the great potential in goods and services that oceans can provide the country, the lack of exploration of our marine resources, the increasing destruction of coastal habitats caused by multiple factors including the human component, the loss of marine biodiversity, as well as the adverse influence of global warming, are cause of undeniable concern. For these reasons, the CEMarin Corporation has made its priority the promotion of marine science and promoting the protection and sustainable use of marine resources, integrating his team of researchers at 60% Colombian scientists of the marine sciences.
The CEMarin researchers are professors and leaders of research groups of the partner institutions of the Corporation that have expressed their intention to actively contributing to it. Our team of researchers currently is made up of a group of more than ninety Colombian and German scientists.
If you are interested in becoming part of this team, you can contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org and send us a letter stating your intention to become an investigator of our Corporation and the reason why you want to do so. The request will be evaluated as soon as possible and a response will be given through that same means.
The CEMarin associated researchers are professors and/or leaders of research groups of institutions that are not members of the Corporation, but they have expressed their intention to actively contribute to it.
If you are interested in becoming part of this team, you can contact us through email@example.com and must request the Scientific Committee to grant you the category of CEMarin associate researcher, explaining the reasons why you would like to be associated to our Corporation as an investigator. The Committee will study the request and give you an answer through an email.
