About me

HjalmarSnakeAlthough born in Sweden back in 1956, I have lived in several places since then. Part of my childhood was spent in Kumasi, Ghana (see photo), where my father was professor in ecology. I finally left school in Sweden, where I consider Lund as my town of origin. Most of my youth – and finally the rest of my life – has mainly been dedicated to nature, environmental conservation and education (I do have a degree as teacher from Lund University).

Half my life I have spent in France and in Greece, where I mainly worked with wetland conservation and salt – a much wider and fascinating subject than most people believe.

Today I once again live in Sweden. For many years I was working for the Nature Conservation Society, mainly as an outdoor teacher at the organizations’s farm Hörjelgården. But today I work as a school teacher.
