Klemens Pütz holds a PhD in marine biology and is Germany’s only penguin researcher. For the last thirty years he has explored the life of the penguins. He founded the Antarctic Research Trust, which in 2004 acquired four small, unspoiled Falkland Islands named Rum, Brandy, Whiskey and Sea Lion Easterly. The acquisition of these four islands, which provide breeding place for hundred thousands of penguins, is an important step in his mission to preserve the animals’ habitat in the Antarctic and Subantarctic. Clemens Pütz has fulfilled his dream – with much creativity and against great odds – and even though he now has family in Northern Germany, he is drawn back to the Antarctic every winter. Periodically, he also acts as an expedition leader on cruise trips through the Antarctic and the Falkland Islands where he shares his fascination for the region and its habitants with the tourists by taking them on discovery tours.
