I am a veterinarian specialized in wildlife manipulation as well as non-invasive research of large carnivores. I work as a senior lecturer on Department of wildlife management and nature conservation on Karlovac University of Applied Sciences. Most of my work on lynx is based on recognition of signs of presence and camera trapping, as well as capture, manipulation and telemetry research. I tend to include my students in every part of field research I can, so they can experience real research situations first hand. I am also experienced hunter and spearfisherman and I try to steal every possible moment from “real life” and spend it in nature with my dog Gea.
