SVEIN AT TEDX: OUR GRAND PLAN TO SAVE AFRICA’S WILDLIFE

Listen to the story

Thomas Røsseland

Thomas has grown up in harbour in Vestland area of Norway and has been driving a boat longer than he has known the alphabets. Thomas has always enjoyed being at the sea. Being a boat guide and living from the sea is one of his dreams. His other great passion is the steep mountains, either by skis or by foot when hunting big game.

Over the years, Thomas did several long skiing trips on Svalbard. The vast landscape and arctic atmosphere made him fall in love with the archipelago. Finally, he sold his small farm on mainland of Norway and moved up north in 2016 to live the dream at Svalbard. In addition to his life long experience in nature, Thomas graduated from the Arctic Nature Guide School on Svalbard.
