Who are we?

Torsten Knorpp – Chief Coordinator & Management

Hey! My name is Torsten, since this year I am the coordinator of the foundation. I take care of the planning and requests for all three locations. I have been working for nature camps for 12 years now, before I studied landscape ecology in Münster. My loyal assistant Dobby the border collie guides me through the programs. In addition to coordinating, I can regularly be found on the rescue boat as a crew member at the KNRM Neeltje Jans. I also love water sports!

I mainly work in Hei- en Boeicop where I plan and organize projects and requests. I also supervise fieldwork programs on location. I love to cook, do board games and play badminton.
