Journalism devoted to wildlife and travels

I like writing, to begin with careful arranging own thoughts on a given topic in my mind and then commit them aptly to paper, hoping that one day somebody would like to read the text and to look at attached photographs with a kind glance. I wrote my first article when I was in my fifth year of studies and since that time I have been constantly publishing, mainly popular articles for the general public concerning natural environment protection, environment engineering and broadly understood ecology, but also about traveling. I think this is an effective way of popularizing knowledge and science among the society, especially when you publish in national reputable magazines. In my output I have got over 130 publications, including travel and popular articles for the general public published in such magazines like: “Aura”, “Ekoswiat”, “Gazeta Gorska”, “Las Polski”, “Poznaj Swiat”, “Przyroda Polska” or “Zielona Liga” and a few dozens of scientific articles published in the line of business periodicals.

Time for books

Recently, as the outcome of my three-month expedition to Alaska, I have written two different books. The newest one, entitled “Across the wilderness of Alaska” is a typical travel story written on the base of daily journals precisely kept from the very beginning to the end of my journey. In this book, by using light and vivid language combined with dozens of pictures, I describe my adventures in Alaska as well as experiences and observations arising of the clash of Polish way of thinking with American culture and Indian mentality. The book is going to be published in September 2018. The second book entitled “National parks and wildlife refuges of Alaska” is devoted to wildlife. It was published several years ago as a popular-scientific, richly illustrated album describing particular parks and wildlife refuges of Alaska and also some species of Alaskan flora and fauna that are rare and not well known in Europe. All persons who like reading (and have enough time for it) I encourage to buying my books and also to reading other my publications which can be downloaded free of charge from the following folders.
