Advanced Dive Training Grant - Recreational, Sponsored by the Women Divers Hall of Fame

Rosa María Lorena Cañedo Apolaya

Born in Peru, Rosa María is a marine biologist who graduated from the International Master of Science in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea) program, coordinated by Ghent University in Belgium. Her first dive was during the last year of her undergraduate studies in 2016, and from then, after starting to deeply connect with the underwater world, she has committed to generate more information that enables people to ​understand how these amazing life forms interact and thrive in the ocean. Rosa Maria plans to improve her diving skills to carry out more complex underwater scientific activities, continue studying subtidal ecosystems and produce underwater visual material to share her love for the ocean.
