NaturTanken (the “Nature Tank”) was founded by Bo Normander in 2018 to provide insight into today’s major green challenges. NaturTanken advises and communicates about nature and climate change. NaturTanken examines the latest knowledge on nature conservation and offers sustainable answers to difficult questions.
NaturTanken is also Nature & Environment Publishers, which has published books and publications on nature and the environment since 2016.
I have lifelong experience with environmental research, writing and nature photography. I’m highly knowledgeable about Nordic and Arctic nature and the environment, and I have written a number of reports and scientific articles on nature and biodiversity.
I have an MSc degree in chemical engineering from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and a research background and a PhD degree from the Danish Environmental Research Institute (today: Department of Environmental Science at Aarhus University).
In parallel with NaturTanken, since April 2023, I’m working as a Scientific Advisor (part-time) for the Danish Biodiversity Council.
In the period 2010 to 2018, I held senior positions in recognized organizations such as the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature, the Danish Ecological Council and the Worldwatch Institute. I appear regularly in the media and am experienced in translating complex material into compelling communication.
In 2018, I founded NaturTanken, where I work as an advisor, lecturer, and author.
My research work today is largely based on tools and methods developed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). I’m a member of the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) and the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM).
