Dr. Pablo Borboroglu, President
Growing up, Pablo’s grandmother told him stories of her childhood visits to see the penguins in Patagonia. As an adult, after receiving his Ph.D. in biology, Pablo dedicated his life to the protection of the world’s penguins. He has gone on to win the prestigious Whitley Award in 2010 and is a co-founder, and president, of the Global Penguin Society.
Pablo’s ability to unite the interests of numerous countries together with the interests of penguins and marine conservation, is especially commendable. He has lobbied successfully for several protected areas, including helping establish the “Blue Patagonia” UNESCO biosphere reserve—which protects 40% of the global population of Magellanic penguins.
