Martina grew up by the Mura river and is particularly attached to it. During her studies, she devoted a lot of time to beavers along the Mura and its side channels. What she admires most about these animals is their ability to change the environment, and she has been educating people about beavers’ important role in the environment for years. She enjoys field work, whether it’s an otter, beaver or bird census. Until the field work completely took over her, she wanted to become a biology teacher, so she is very happy to present aquatic biodiversity to children and adults. When not in the field, she takes care of her cat family, in which there is always room for new rough sleepers.
