I’m a biologist, actively involved in the field of large carnivores for the last 10 years. First I started as a volunteer, later on as an employee on Slovenia Forest Service. Since 2014, I have been working at SFS in the field of conflict mitigation between people and large carnivores, mostly with damage prevention measures. I always try to understand the challenges of people living in areas of large carnivore presence. I live in countryside, which gives me the opportunity to closely understand the everyday challenges. I was actively involved in researches on golden jackals, otters, beavers, invasive species, and I have been an active ornithologist for more than 20 years. In my free time, I like to be with my family and friends, and I also do sports, mostly running, hiking and other activities in the nature.
