Star Clipper's Royal Clipper to Have Resident Marine Biologist

Star Clippers appointed marine biologist Mariano Peruzzo to serve as a resident expert on board Royal Clipper’s Mediterranean and Caribbean sailings. Peruzzo, a graduate in biological sciences of the University of Genoa, will give daily talks on marine biology relevant to the area where the ship is sailing.

He also will provide presentations on the history of oceanography, coral reefs, cetaceans, marine reptiles and geology. The lectures cover climate change, too.Peruzzo is setting up a small laboratory on board and will be conducting scientific research.
Passengers can join him at dawn on deck to look for and log whales and dolphins, or on dives and snorkeling trips, or for beach walks in areas of ecological interest.
