I'm certified biologist from Germany and I moved to Portugal in order to live a life in harmony with nature, and to invite others to do the same. After seeing and feeling the results of my final uni thesis where I detected micro-(and nano)plastics in sand samples taken at beaches in the Peniche area, I decided to stay and to help the ocean spread her message. Since 4 years I am living in the Peniche area. I started many projects including my Blog Peniche Nature Guide where I help record strandings of marine mammals and help citizens and travellers to report and remove pollution, raise awareness and knowledge about sustainability and conservation. I have co-created a Non-Profit Organisation for the protection of the environment Marmeu. My most recent project is called "Turn the Tide Peniche" which aims to give a second life to waste.
We will discover one of the most beautiful beaches in the Peniche area. We will meet at your accommodation or at the car park of the beach and start our tour from there on together.

The time & place of our tours will depend on the tides. Due to safety some beaches can only be visited during Lowtide.
