My most beautiful nature experiences in 2019

It's time for me to look back on the past year. With this highlight video, I would like to give you an insight into my year 2019. It was a very eventful year in which I was once again able to see the beauty of our natural world for myself. For the first time since I started my own business as a nature filmmaker, I was also drawn abroad. In Cuba, I had the opportunity to film in a cave with around two million bats and 200 snakes.

This was without a doubt my absolute highlight of the year. Just experiencing the cultural differences and the completely different approach to nature was worth the trip. It was good for me to experience an agriculture that works completely without pesticides and where farmers work with nature instead of against it. The result is an incredibly high number of insects, amphibians and bird species.

But I was also once again captivated by our local nature. On the island of Hiddensee, I spent several days working in the wild core zone of the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park. In the Lower Oder Valley National Park, I spent several cold nights in the fall at the roosts of migratory birds.

It was a lot of effort that I took on, but it was also rewarded with great close-ups. The most appealing thing is the change of perspective that you experience. Spending the night next to so many wild animals without being recognized also helps to get a feel for how nature experiences us humans and what influence we have on it. My most depressing experience was certainly having to witness how a lake with around 20,000 cackling geese and 2,000 trumpeting cranes can become so quiet from one second to the next that you could hear a pin drop. And all because a single quad bike rider thought he had to speed along the closed-off paths of the reserve in the middle of the night, unsettling a huge mass of animals for several minutes. In these moments, you ask yourself whether we humans can actually still be tamed by anything or whether it really is as hopeless as it sometimes seems.

In the end, however, the positive moments outweigh the negative ones for me this year and I am not giving up hope that we will eventually realize what natural treasures we still have on our doorstep. I'm looking forward to a hopefully similarly eventful 2020 and hope you enjoy my film.

Best regards,

Hey, I'm Stephan and I have a great passion for our local nature. As a wildlife filmmaker, I travel to the last natural places in Germany and try to show people with my recordings how worth protecting our nature is. In the Wildlife Blog of CareElite I want to contribute to a better understanding of nature.

  1. Hello Christoph,
    WOW! I'm so happy for you that you started your own business as a nature filmmaker! Your videos look great! I left a couple likes and a subscription right away 🙂 .
    I've been following you on Careelite for a while now. You more or less even motivated me to start my own website.
    I had never heard of the Lower Oder Valley National Park before! Thanks for the video. We will also go there on occasion, as it is practically around the corner.
    Many greetings and continued success in your new project.

    1. Hey Jorge! Thanks for your feedback - but to be fair, I have to pass the praise on to my brother Stephan, who captures all the moments from nature.
      I wish you much success with your own project!
      Best regards
