Anders Stahl

AFC Conservation Artist of the Month for February, 2009

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
