Frans Schepers grew up in a small town in the Netherlands, but that didn’t stop him from traveling to the farthest corners of the earth carving out a wonderful career in conservation. He now strives to make Europe a shining example to the rest of the world of how Rewilding can work.
An avid bird watcher, in this episode of MHP Frans shares his story-the memory of seeing an owl for the first time, traveling the world only to discover the beauty in his own back yard, his vision of Rewilding Europe and leaving a part of his heart in Southern Africa.
Frans Schepers is the Managing Director of Rewilding Europe, an impressive initiative to rewild 1 million hectares of Europe by 2020. He has worked for the World Wide Fund for Nature and specializes in conservation, ecological and rewilding strategies.
