About Joe Kristoffer Partyka
Joe is something of an odd crossover between the world of natural sciences and the liberal arts. After completing a BSc in conflict history from the University of Oslo, Joe transferred into the world of natural sciences. First he studied for his BSc in Biology at the same university, and later he completed his MSc in tropical ecology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences working with crocodiles in Belize. Joes main interests are mostly related to large predators, their behavior, interactions with humans, and anything relating to their biology and physiology. Basically, if it’s big and potentially dangerous, Joe finds it interesting. Luckily all his interests came together as he now works with mediation of the interhuman conflicts in Norway, so called human-predator conflict, as a predator consultant and communications professional.

We have all heard it “Whaling is bad!”, but few know why it’s SO bad. Now, I’m in no way a vegan, or even vegetarian. I eat meat, and I usually enjoy it. But I […]

Crocodiles may not be the first creature that comes to mind when you think of Norway. And if you are Norwegian you are most likely never going to see, let alone, handle a croc. So […]
