Jasper has joined the BRC with his master thesis in Ecology, Evolution and Nature Conservation at the University of Potsdam. His research considers weather phenomena as drivers for regional circumvention and aggregation of migrating raptors. During his B.Sc in Nature Conservation and Landscape Use at the University of Eberswalde he got familiar with methods on sustainability of societal use of natural values such us soil, water, air, plants and animals. The thesis on habitat use of middle spotted woodpeckers in beech forests has manifested his love for nature while he worked in remote protected areas in eastern Germany. In Batumi the interest in nature joined his passion for exploring foreign countries and cultures.
He strongly believes in the multi-facetted approach of BRC and is keen to maintain and to further develop the strong volunteer based conservation in Batumi where people from several different countries can meet in an open-minded and innovative community based conservation project.
He has been organizing and managing the monitoring count program and has been actively working as board member since 2012. In 2014 and 2015 he led the BRC as chairman.
