Miguel Varela
Postgraduate research student


I am a Portuguese scientist from Lisboa. I work with marine conservation and research for 6 years including field assistant, researcher, volunteer coordinator, project manager, etc.I work mostly with sea turtle conservation/research projects, UAV's / Drones and photogrammetry. I have worked both on nesting and in-water biology of sea turtles, with different species: hawksbills, green turtles and leatherbacks; at Puerto Rico mainland, Culebra Island, Mona Island, Cyprus and Principe Island.

Most recently I've become more involved in the use of drones for conservation using photogrammetry, thermal cameras and RTK alternative GPSs.
