Sharing stories about conservation


Orangutan Research on Borneo
Wilhelm Osterman, founder of The Biotrotter, is currently on Borneo: I am conducting research on wild orangutans as a research assistant through the university in Zürich. I will live stay at Tuanan research station, trekking in muddy swamp forests. I will observe their habits all day long and at the same time he will also work with conservation of the orangutans

Environmentalists going to South America
Joel Lönnqvist, co-founder of The biotrotter  and Brenda Vidal, master of environmental science, are going by boat to the new world! They will try out how it is to do woofing, and will live on sustainable farms all over the continent. They will of course also go to the Amazons and other national parks to explore the amazing biodiversity found nowhere else in this world!

Biotrotter in Africa

Read about when The Biotrotter went around in southern and eastern Africa, to interview researchers working with endangered animals! From the rainforests of Madagascar, to the open plains of Masai Mara and the deserts of Nambia. Camping for about two months in the African wilderness and hiking over 300 km, this was an ultimate adventure to find some of the rarest and most endangered animals on the planet.

  1. Thanks for providing the names for the flowers on my Smugmug site. Its something I have been intending to do, time permitting and the many guides I have punched being actually helpful. Much appreciated!

    1. Yeah, you are much welcome of course! I think, as I said, a flower course would fit your interest of photography well!

      And although it might sound boring it might actually give a lot of inspiration. I went on a “flora and fauna” course 3 years ago…just to learn the fauna. I started of as quite negative to the flowers but now it’s one of my big interests! I wish I could help you more though!

  2. Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo
    News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thank you
