Breeding and conservation actions




External butterfly expert


My interest in butterflies began when I was 12 years old (1963). Collecting and breeding were already on the agenda at that time.
Since 1980 I have been an active member of the Haus der Natur (Department: Entomology), I have been observing and collecting butterflies in the regions of Pinzgau, adjacent Tyrol and Bavaria since 1973 – all records of those observations can be found in my own archive and in the Haus der Natur.

Being an eager photographer myself, I possess extensive photographic material of native species, including of course Parnassius apollo in their respective stages.

#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.
