Conservation

Natural Historic conservation
As a natural historic conservator I deal with conservation of animals, plants and fossils.
Beside I have been educated in mediation of science and in natural preservation as well as subjects as botanic, zoology, geology and chemistry, which are used as a support in the teaching of natural historic conservation (a full list of the educations courses and seminars are available in the CV-section)
A great part of the educations courses are given in the field in cooperation with natural historic and medicinal museums.
