About Jan Philipp Kehl

Conservationist with conviction, hunter and enthusiastic about species conservation. I am currently committed to the management of the large carnivores bear & wolf in southern and eastern Europe. In 2020, I joined the EuroNatur Foundation and since then have been managing the two programmes on bear and wolf conservation with presently four projects in Poland, Czech Republic, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Spain. 🐻🐺

In my master thesis I developed a stakeholder analysis for the wildlife management of European bison and Eurasian elk in the German federal states Brandenburg & Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and was fascinated by the opportunities and challenges of returning large herbivores to Germany. 

I'm passionate about creating and promoting long-term human-wildlife coexistence. In recent years I have focused on management in nature and species conservation, as well as stakeholder engagement/communication and environmental education.
