Gabija joined the team in 2022. Before she was working as a project manager in a governmental organisation “Invest Lithuania” and also multiple environmental projects in Spain. Gabija acquired a Bachelor degree in Geography in Vilnius university, Lithuania and a Master’s degree in Conservation, Restoration and Management of Biodiversity in University of Granada, Spain.
FIELDS OF EXPERTISE:
- Restoration and conservation of biodiversity;
- Project management;
Gabija says: “We are currently living in times, when relying only on environmental conservation, we are not able to preserve functioning and healthy ecosystems, habitats and species. Therefore it is crucial to work not only on conservation, but also on restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity. Often damaged ecosystems cannot be restored to their initial state due to lack of information, land use, social, economical, and other reasons, so we should look for compromises which would allow us to have sustainably managed natural and semi natural ecosystems with the support of local communities.”
