My name is Andreas Rakers, and I live in the Twist municipality in the Naturpark Bourtanger Moor natural reserve. The Rühlermoor has been a source of fascination for me since I was small. As a young boy, I always wanted to investigate things whilst on expeditions with friends. Today, as a biologist, I still repeatedly discover new things about the natural world which astonish me. I would like to share these experiences with you. My focuses are insects, plants, their adaptation strategies and ecology.
