What people say?
I am very proud to have completed the Rewilding Europe‘s Rewilding Training Tourism programme, which is focusedon developing and upskilling the guiding and hospitality segment of Europe’s nature tourism sector. Set up by Rewilding Europe, it aims to professionalise and scale up nature-based tourism in Europe. It is designed for guides, hospitality and tourism entrepreneurs, and other local partners in rewilding areas and enables them to act as ambassadors for rewilding. Providing comprehensive rewilding and tourism training, it incorporates Rewilding Europe’s best practices.
I am very proud to be a member of NATURE FIRST PHOTOGRAPHY ALLIANCE and actively promote NATURE. It is very important to recognize our responsibility.
Protecting wild places and animals begins with prioritizing the well-being of nature above my photography.
We should reflect on the possible impact of our actions, not only when taking photos but also what we do with them!
Interpreting our heritage is crucial for all of us. To understand the world around us, to appreciate it and to safe it.
I feel very grateful to be part of this community.
Even more, my work on large carnivore interpretation has been recognised by Interpret Europe as one of the best leading examples in Europe!
We are proud BEAR FRIENDLY AMBASSADORS and actively promote bear conservation in the local area as well as good co-existing practice with large carnivore. In our tours we strive for being responsible and also educate about this our guests. We were awarded with BEAR FRIENDLY certificate in the framework of LIFE DINALP BEAR project. Our work (products and tours) were recognized as an example of good conservation and tourism practice. It is not only confirmation of our efforts but a huge responsibility for the future.
