  Anders interest in conservation started when he was around 10 years old and got involved in the local bird club. Before that he recalls himself as being more of the typical little boy running around in nature thinking there were no problems.  A teacher who understood his interests helped him join the birdclub, where he discovered others who loved nature just as much. In school his interest for nature grew and when the birdclub went through France by bus for some serious birding and visiting conservation projects, he was really hooked!
AndersI had been drawing and painting since he was very young and had first wildlife art exhibition in his early teens. From there it's been rolling, both as a naturalist and artist.
 As he got older Anders started to travel around the world in his search for nature and it gave him a deeper understanding for how important global conservation is. "There's just no way around it and the help is needed everywhere! "
Anders has been an active participant in a number of local non-profit conservation projects such as:

Nesting box/platform projects for small birds, owls and birds of prey, in the 80:s and 90:s
Reintroducing Peregrine Falcon - he was responsible for a certain location in this successful project for 3 years in the 90:s
Inventories of forest areas, trying to find out about the status of bird populations in the forest.
Inventories of old growth forests, - trying to find, and save, the last remaining areas of old forests. He has been checking forest pre-cutting reports more or less once every month the last 15 years, and try to check as many of them as possible in the field before they are logged. He has saved several areas containing endangered species this way. This mission is still running and will do so until Sweden's old forests are all gone, which sadly is not far away…
Wolf project.- he tracked wolves since they returned to his area in the early 90:s, and has taken part in two radio-taggings. His job was to track them so the scientists could move in with a helicopter, put them to sleep, do the testing, tag them and release them under his supervision so that they would not get hurt as they woke up. Also, all the information from daily tracking is sent to the scientists. This is an ongoing mission.
Anders also turned wolf tracking into ecotourism for a while, until they were attacked by local hunters and wolf-haters! He is trying to restart this on a very small scale.
He is a member of two local conservation boards: Swedish Nature Conservation Society in Leksand and Leksand Nature Fund. Their job is to raise funds and work for more conservation any way possible.
He was responsible for starting up regional sections within the Swedish Carnivore Ass´n.
He started the local group for wolf survey vs. hunting, and it still stands as a model for these kinds of groups in Sweden. It's objective was to bring naturalists and hunters to the same table to talk. And it worked!
He is a supporting member of four conservation organizations.
He is a "gorilla godfather" through WWF
He is now a half time employee (project leader 2-3 years) to develop ecotourism in the region around lake Siljan, www.siljan.se in central Sweden where he lives.
In his job as an artist and illustrator he often gets commissioned to make folders, signs, illustrations etc about nature and nature conservation.

As Anders sumarizes " Basically I work hardest with forest and wolves. Sweden may have a reputation as very pro conservation country, but there are some issues where we have a long walk ahead…and I will try to be a part of that for as long as I can!"
Anders professional career as an artist started in the late 80's when he had his first public exhibitions. Since then he has shown his works in numerous galleries and exhibitions in Sweden and once in the US. He lives and has his studio in the town of Leksand, district of Dalarna, known as "the heart of Sweden".
