AFGN cofounder Karl-Hans Bahns passed away 

   

The AFGN (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Fischarten und Gewässerschutz in Norddeutschland) has lost one of its most important allies on 21.5.2020. 

Karl-Hans Bahns has been part of the backbone of the AFGN. He never tended to push himself to the fore but he was always present when concernes of waters were touched. His engagement at the River Elbe tributary Este and its river system went far beyond issues of fishes. His idea of nature conservation has always been the complete aspect of habitat, plants, animals and humans.

Nachruf Karl Hans Bahns

Following my request as a speaker of the AFGN at the time, Karl-Hans provided me completely unselfishly with his entire text and photo archive about the AFGN. 

Karl-Hans we are missing you!

Stefan Ludwig former speaker of the AFGN
