Christine Coellejan has lived in Germany for 25 years. For more than half this time she has been working at the EuroNatur Office in Rheinbach near Bonn, setting up and keeping up the direct line to Poland.

She comes from Kattowitz in Silesia and holds a diploma in business administration. For years she has been working in the EuroNatur project in the Narew region with a range of partners who are farmers, scientists and important decision makers. Her command of the Polish language and knowledge acquired over the years has proved invaluable: Christine Coellejan has been able to cultivate the connections to important project partners and facilitate the setting up of further networks. With the translations that she makes of applications for projects, of contracts or of scientific studies she creates the essential foundations for the smooth functioning of projects in Poland.

In her words: “My work at EuroNatur is not only meaningful, it is also extremely interesting. Every project is different in character and there is something new to learn every day.”

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.
