Lars has worked with bird monitoring and scientific research for more than 25 years. One of his many roles was as head of an ecological field station in the Danish part of the Wadden Sea at the North Sea coast - one of the world’s hot spots for birds migrating between the Arctic and Africa. From 2007 to 2012 he lived in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, where he worked as a scientist in the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources with research on Arctic seabirds, sea mammals and caribou, as well as environmental assessments of oil and mineral exploitation.
He has a scientific interest in seabirds and a thorough knowledge of many aspects of arctic wildlife and ecology. He is currently based in Copenhagen, counseling in environmental impact assessment, conservation management, bird ecology, and Arctic environment.
Born in Denmark, Lars grew up on the western part at the Wadden Sea. He graduated with a Master in Landscape Planning and Rural Studies from the University of Copenhagen. He has guided tours for a variety of nature organizations as well as professional tourist operators, especially in the Danish Wadden Sea area. Since 2010, Lars has guided in the Arctic on tours in Svalbard, East Greenland, and West Greenland.
He has travelled through most parts of Europe, as well as Turkey, Israel, West Africa, Kamchatka, New Zealand, Australia, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Canada and the U.S., to study nature – birds in particular.
