When Paul first came to Slovenia in 1998, he already immediately realised how beautiful and unique this place is. Now that he is living in the Notranjska region, he got to know the countryside pretty well, but he never ceased to admire everything he sees. As a biologist and former lecturer in Wildlife Management, he is an engaged speaker, known for his enthusiasm. He started out as herpetologist but is an all-round naturalist with a broad knowledge. In Slovenia, he has worked on a variety of nature conservation and education projects. He recently returned to nature guiding and nature conservation projects as part of his activities. He is also a scientific illustrator, see www.animaldrawings.eu for examples of his work.
