We are thrilled to introduce Santxo Etcheverry as the newest member of our Seabin Foundation team. Santxo is from Biarritz, France, where he grew up just a short distance from the ocean. His proximity to the sea has always brought him immense joy, but it has also made him acutely aware of the pollution that threatens this fragile ecosystem.
