For Anja Arning, it all began with an EuroNatur press trip to the Balkans in 2012:  At that time a journalist of a supraregional daily newspaper, she experienced EuroNatur activists at work, Dalmatian pelicans in flight and the beauty of Montenegro’s mountain landscape during these four days – encounters which lastingly impressed her.

Five years after this trip, her curiosity, openness and desire to make the world a little better encouraged Anja Arning to take over a senior position in the press and public relations department at EuroNatur. After ten years as a journalist with Südkurier, she changed over to nature conservation. Today she uses her journalistic experience to present EuroNatur topics in an appealing way and to give them the public attention they deserve. Among other things, she continues to expand the network of media contacts.

EuroNatur has been convincing Anja Arning particularly by the spirit of solidarity. “Solidarity does not have much advocacy in today’s societies. But with EuroNatur this is different. Instead of profit seeking, the focus is on the common idea, on thinking beyond one’s own nose, on interconnectedness. As part of the EuroNatur network, I have the good feeling that I can make a meaningful contribution,” she says.

Brown Bear

Seen as a predator with a sweet tooth, a much loved model for soft toys yet outlawed and hunted down as a blood-thirsty beast: the brown bear.


Lithe and skillful, the lynx is a shy, lone hunter. If it is to survive in Europe and if the population is to be undisturbed enough to increase in number, intensive protection measures will be required.


Mankind's relationship to the wolf is ambivalent – on the one hand the animal is admired as a skilled and untiring hunter but also ill-famed as Isengrim the bloodthirsty and persecuted.

Migratory birds

Always to be where living conditions are best: this is a luxury that only those with wings can afford.

Green Belt

Across 12 500 kilometres (over 7700 miles) the Green Belt stretches along the one-time Iron Curtain forming a corridor of habitats for an exceptional diversity of species.

Rivers in Europe

Where in Germany can you still find the original wild rivers? You'll need a magnifying glass. But in the Balkans such utopias still exist on a large scale, even today.
