Teamvorstellung 1

Like an ecosystem, our association lives from the diversity of its species (or members). We introduce you to the different species behind Nepada Wildlife e.V.

With the help of the following profiles, you will recognize our team in the wild.

Name

Jannes Vahl

Natural habitat

Born in Oldenburg, now living in Hamburg and helping Nepada everywhere on our blue-green planet

Characteristics

I try to improve my perception of nature as much as Hannah can, but I have given up hope in the meantime. So I always run after her in the jungle, sweating, but I also always find the most poisonous and dangerous animals

Special skills

As second chairman, I watch Hannah’s back. As a journalist and networker, I communicate about the association. And as founder of two other non-profit associations, I can help Nepada with my experience

Greatest wildlife moment

Directly my arrival to Hannah’s Borneo project in 2017: the first animals I saw were six-meter groin crocodiles on Kinabatangan

Organization & Structure: Dr. Ronja Heimes

Natural habitat

Usually found near heath plants or in extensive native or tropical forest areas

Characteristics

I am constantly buzzing, chattering or being barked at, whether at work as an official veterinarian or with my hard-working colleagues in the beehive

Special skills

organization-loving researcher and animal rights activist

Greatest wildlife moment

My dives through the remote Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Besides colorful iridescent corals exploding with species richness I saw mainly large grey sections without color and signs of life and know that it is almost too late to save this biotope with its species

Treasurer: Johannes Dierkes

Name

Johannes Dierkes

Natural habitat

Usually near my coffee machine or my piano, but as often as possible on my racing bike or hiking and running on forest paths that are as winding as possible

Characteristics

I’m about the size of an almost full-grown wood bison, though only about as heavy as 4 clouded leopards. And I am about 1/6 as old as the Seychelles giant tortoise Jonathan

Special skills

Excel Magic and Orga Guru

Greatest wildlife moment

Amazed observation of dozens of running giraffes through the steppe of Etosha National Park in Namibia! What majestic creatures

Name

Franz August, good friends call me Franz or Fränzchen

Natural habitat

From a city kid from Essen to a forest lover in Freiburg and Bonn. Today I live on the outskirts of Bonn or in Hochsauerland, my second home. I love canoeing in Sweden, hiking with a dachshund, or speeding through the Sauerland on my mountain bike

Characteristics

Looking like a wood gnome with a white beard. Passionate about music, percussion, and nature

Special skills

Specialist in environment and biodiversity and a big admirer of sustainable development

Greatest wildlife moment

My greatest wildlife moments include seeing my first orcas or humpback whales, the bear in the Rockies, or the black stork in the Sauerland. I want my grandchildren to still be able to experience such a diverse animal world
