Charles Oppe

Member and ambassador of Biotop natura in Madrid

Graduate University of East Anglia (UK)

Founder of GAP Spain (NGO, 1996)

Climate reality

Qualified as a Forest Therapy guide by the ANFT (Natural Forest Therapy Association).

Current interests: create programs for GAP related to the Climate Crisis based on ODG and a consultancy in sustainable tourism

Charles Ope has always been interested on trees. From an early age he was fortunate enough to spend his holidays in a country house in England in a huge park, full of trees. He was alone, aged 9 and walked between huge oaks and beech. Since then the trees have had a special place in his heart.

When he came to Spain, he fell in love with his wilderness and especially his high mountain, where the trees were part of a very unique landscape.

Their work is devoted to developing environmental projects, based on behaviour in our schools, households and workplaces.

During a time of his life he felt that he lacked more connection with nature and particularly with trees.

Observing the destruction that trees suffered from pruning and the felling of pointless trees in a nearby park of their house, he decided to do something to defend these wonderful species that are so destitute. Every time he sees the destruction of a tree that "knows" he breaks his heart. Now he can and wants to do something to protect them, and that's why he's in Biotop Nature.
