Sabine decided to study biology with a focus on ecology and conservation to learn more about nature and contribute to the preservation of her favorite place to be in. While obtaining her Master of Science in Biology at the University of Regensburg in Germany, she never let a chance go by to be outdoors and travel, the more remote, the better. Therefore, she did not only spend much of her time working in the mountain ecosystems of the Alps, but instead on research projects in the boreal forest of Eastern Siberia, the savanna of Burkina Faso, and the tropical rain forest of the Peruvian Amazon.
Here, where others did not often venture, Sabine felt the most at ease and was thriving in her work. Her love for wilderness and nature eventually led her path to the west coast of Canada, where she found her passion for guiding in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia in 2017, leading bear-viewing tours and teaching about the ecology of this special ecosystem ever since.
When not guiding, Sabine likes to hike to remote places, one of her highlights being the successful attempt to climb a mountain out in the BC woods, far off any trails. This multi-day adventure in the roughest terrain she had ever wandered in, and the reward it held, epitomizes why she loves to be a naturalist guide: to give others the opportunity to experience special moments like these in nature and create lifelong memories.
Today, Sabine is leading Nat Hab expeditions in the Swiss Alps, and is excited for the opportunity to share her passion for those storied highlands where her path to becoming a nature enthusiast and naturalist originated many years ago.
