“I set-up Mudfooted.com in December 2009 with the aim to get more people to know and appreciate our natural world and the unique species that inhabit it. By writing articles in which interesting and unique species and their behaviour are featured, displaying the most amazing nature videos and photography, making scientific findings understandable for lay people, and sharing my personal explorations I hope people will deepen their interest for nature, will contribute more to the conservation, and will better understand the importance of science!”

More than half a million people have visited Mudfooted.com and read almost one million pages; it has received over 1,000+ fb likes and has over 500 followers on twitter, and has been featured in numerous media including the daily mail!
