Damarilys Marquez

University of Puerto Rico



Hello everyone! My name is Damarilys and I am from Carolina, Puerto Rico. I graduated from University of Puerto Rico, Humacao Campus in June 2016 earning a degree in Coastal Marine Biology. A few months after graduation I moved to Virginia for an internship with Osa Conservation in Washington DC. Got to admit that I am deeply in love with the ocean an all of its beautiful creatures. In my free time I love to spend time with the people I love, going to the beach, watching Netflix, eating and why not sleeping. One of my biggest dreams is to dive with whales and travel the world, enjoying nature and it’s magic. My favorite sea turtle is the Hawskbill and although they’re not that common in South Padre, I am really excited to be an intern with Sea Turtle Inc. this nesting season and I hope to learn as much as I can.
