Klub Przyrodników is a non-governmental organization operating in Poland in the field of nature protection for almost 40 years. It employs from 15 to 25 employees with specialized education in botany, zoology, forestry, and geology. It also has two Field Stations operating as education centers implementing our statutory activities.


I come from Lower Silesia, Poland but I found my homeland in Lubuskie – full of lakes, forests, peatlands and grasslands. Here my son grew up and here I allowed myself to root. In my free time, I ride a mountain bike and I create things – I suffer from “restless hands syndrome” 😉. 

Professionally, I’m a biologist and an accountant with many years of experience both in public and private entities. This proved to be a good combination to manage LIFE projects. Sometimes as a leader, sometimes as a backstage supporter – either way I have fun combining numbers with living organisms, bureaucracy with real life. With this approach, I managed to write dozen of successful proposals and implement several of them. While managing any project I’m trying to implement a rule of partnership – it takes a team to build success. We share our rights and responsibilities to create a good project. And I’m glad to be a part of a great Apollo team. 

#followapollo and the efforts of our team! Combined skills in breeding, conservation of habitats, research, environmental education, and project management constitute a great combination for the success of our LIFE project.
