Juan Castaño

Co-Founder

After graduating from Business Administration and Law, I spent a few years working in the corporate world, mostly in sales. However, I soon realized that there was much more to life than simply sitting in an office, making money. Hence, I quit my job and began backpacking the world. This journey of self-discovery took me to Australia for two years, fully immersing myself in a new culture and connecting to nature as never before. The pivotal point in my life came when I decided to move to St. Andrews, in Scotland, to complete a Master’s in Sustainable Development. During my time there, I discovered that the entire surrounding coastline was littered in plastics and marine debris. The dream of moving to a pristine and wild Scottish coast was over, but the time to act had only just begun. My experience and passion finally lead me to start my own marine conservation organisation, together with my best buddy and travel mate. I am also an enthusiast of outdoor sports, a certified Dive Master, and a pianist.
