With my work I hope to promote
conservation, dignity and respect.
Trying to convey my own feeling of
awe over the wonders and the beauty
of the natural world, and of the
striking expressions of different
cultures. Please do take a look
through the Galleries and the Slide
These are images for life.
Hope you enjoy them.

wonders of our continent, by showing their beauty and charm
to the 700 million Europeans and the World!

needs to be done about it. A communication campaign with its main
output starting in 2010 - The International Year of Biodiversity
I am proud to invite you to our website and to take part of the results

Rewilding Europe is about making Europe a wilder place.With much more space for wildlife, wilderness and wild values. Bringing the variety of life back to Europe's abandoned lands. Exploring new ways for people to earn a fair living from the wild.
Suggesting a new vision for nature conservation in Europe, allowing the natural processes to go back to work. Letting the native, large wild herbivores come back in numbers.
Rewilding Europe aims to rewild at least one million hectares/10,000 sq km of Europe by 2020, consisting of ten areas, each with a minimum of 100,000 ha/1,000 sq km, which together reflect a wide selection of European regions and ecosystems, flora and fauna. Including areas of both land and sea, with each then showing a substantial wildlife comeback, supported by reintroductions where necessary.
These areas will serve as front-runners and inspiration for a large-scale shift in land use across Europe towards more nature-based economies.
