I’m Tom, a biologist living in Białowieża Forest in eastern Poland. I’m a PhD student at the Mammal Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences, where I research the ecology of wolves.

Over time, I’ve been discovering just how rich is Poland’s natural heritage. Here you can find the kind of nature that has mostly been wiped out over successive generations of development in western Europe. Through my scientific work I aim to contribute a little towards unlocking its ecological secrets. I hope this will help society keep a hold of its few remaining wild places for future generations.

As there is little published in English about wildlife in Poland, I hope for this website to fill some of this gap. Over time, as I gather stories about the wolves and wildlife that inhabit Poland, I’ll post them up here. I hope you’ll find the site useful.
