Iwork in the Nature Conservation Agency of Latvia. From time to time I am involved in different projects concerning nature conservation and research. In my daily life, I am busy with planning nature conservation actions, research, field trips, informal nature education and other issues. I have been involved in grassland restoration projects by planning the actions and studying the changes caused by different restoration and management approaches. Lately, I am mostly interested in mires and their restoration, though my affection to the colourful, magnificent semi-natural grasslands in Latvia still remain unchanged.
