During the lunch break Christian Stielow is often to be found out with his binoculars, bird watching on the Mettnau peninsula of Lake Constance. His curiosity and the yearning for those special moments are what drive him on. By training, he is a historian and the natural world is his hobby. But it is not passion alone which brought the native of Northern Friesland to EuroNatur. It is his aim to pass on his enthusiasm to others, and so do something for nature conservation.

Since the beginning of 2017 the EuroNatur team has been the stronger for his presence in the public relations department. His main areas of responsibility are maintaining the EuroNatur website and the Facebook profile of the foundation. With the newsletter he keeps our followers up to date with the latest developments in EuroNatur's activities and creates popular highlights in the EuroNatur year with his initiatives such as the Advent calendar and the writing competition. He enriches the magazine with his articles and boosts the public profile of EuroNatur projects.

"One of my key concerns is to increase central European awareness of the Balkans. The landscapes of South East Europe are every bit as rich and varied as its cultures. I want to make people more aware not only of its beauty, but also of the threats to its survival ", says Christian Stielow.

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.

Lynx

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.

Wolf

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.
