Since he lived and worked in Cambodia for almost a year some time ago, he has been fascinated by the region of Southeast Asia, its people and its nature. In the meantime, he is working more generally on the challenges of protecting endangered species and making environmental protection and economic development more compatible. His main areas of work are poaching and the trade in illegal wildlife products, especially ivory and rhino horn. At the same time, he works to protect such endangered and iconic species as the great apes, the polar bear, the great panda and the Sumatran rhinoceros.
