About Cyril R.

It was very probably my father who transmitted this passion to me, which I myself will try to transmit to my children. As soon as I have a little time, I take the opportunity to spend some time in nature. In addition, I am also interested in everything related to well-being and ecology from near or far, I am fascinated by all investigative, verifiable and reproducible methods aimed at producing knowledge. So I decided to write articles that touch on these areas. I hope I can pass on some of my knowledge and my love for nature to you.
