Species per aquam - Biodiversity between the Ticino Valley and the Alps
Since 2000, I have been working with natural parks, nature conservation organizations, and other institutions on environmental communication and analysis projects. In recent years, my work has involved producing documentary videos with a focus on environmental issues from a historical perspective including wilderness, biodiversity protection, degrowth, and local history.The videos have been shown at numerous international film festivals where they received prestigious awards.
The upper Ticino Valley is blessed with numerous protected areas. But protection cannot be achieved through titles alone: in-depth scientific knowledge is crucial to understanding the ecological value of an area and the extent of the threats it faces. The Species per Aquam project has acquired this knowledge and translated it into practical environmental improvement efforts.
