In memoriam: Pablo Bordino 350 251 The Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea

Pablo Bordino was a friend, mentor and guide for many members of the Forum. He left positive marks in all of them as well as in our Patagonian Sea. The study and conservation of Franciscana dolphin carried out by AquaMarina, an NGO founded and directed by him since 1998, sure was one of them. Pablo died on June 11, 2018 in the city of Pinamar, Buenos Aires. Since then, we miss him deeply, and we are inspired to keep honoring his legacy regarding marine conservation.
