The main places in which CEMarin carries out its investigations are located in Colombia, one of the “Megadiverse Countries" of the world, which possess a high richness in species of fauna and flora, ecosystems and habitats. In fact, of 70% of the biodiversity attributed to the Group of Like-Minded Megadiverse Countries (LMMC), 10% is attributed to Colombia.
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 and, additionally, the country has a vast marine territory in two oceans (the Pacific and the Caribbean).
For all these factors Colombia is considered the second among the most biodiverse countries in the world per square kilometer and an environmental power with privileged conditions, so the promotion of marine sciences and the protection and sustainable use of marine resources are a priority in the country. In particular, the loss of marine biodiversity, the increasing destruction of coastal habitats, industry and tourism, as well as the adverse influence of global warming, have been a source of concern to scientists and politicians for a long time.
An important quality of the places where the research is carried out is that they have similar characteristics, including the presence of large rivers, estuaries, mangroves and coral reefs, which allow comparative inquiry. They are: Santa Marta (Caribbean Coast), Islas del Rosario (Caribbean Coast), Gulf of Urabá (Caribbean Coast) and Bahía Málaga (Pacific Coast).
The CEMarin researchers are professors and/or leaders of research groups of the member 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 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.
