Contributing the „critical view of a career changer“, Markus Dressnandt, trained hotel manager, is enriching EuroNatur’s work since 2008. In his first years, he worked as an assistant to the executive director. Since 2015, Markus Dressnandt is heading the online fundraising section, full-heartedly working to increase the foundation’s presence in the online world. He develops strategies and concepts to make optimum use of the many opportunities of digital communication channels for the foundation’s work, in particular focusing on social media. His field of responsibility also includes coordinating technical issues and overseeing EuroNatur’s internal IT.

Grown up in Braşov/Kronstadt, Romania, where “bears roam the gardens”, nature has been a central element throughout his life. In his own words: “EuroNatur’s motto ‘Connecting nature and people’ is the best motto I can think of. I enjoy every day working within this strong international network and contributing my share to preserving nature and environment, including for future generations.”

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.
