Our mission in life: Moorland protection now!
Peatlands are in danger worldwide. They are destroyed for agriculture, forestry or other economic purposes. We defend the healthy moors and work with our partnerships to restore what has already been destroyed.
“With our non-profit organization, we are committed to ensuring that moors can once again provide an earth worth living on in the future.”
Anni & Alex Kornelsen, founding team of Mission to Marsh
Ann-Christin Kornelsen is the scientific heart of our mission. With her passion for the protection of moors, she is particularly active in professional circles for the preservation of wetlands.
Several scientific publications on the subject of moors.
Chairwoman of the German Society for Moor and Peat Science (DGMT).
Not a water rat
Anni prefers to stay on land and dreads canoe trips or boat tours.
For the mission, however, she paddled a canoe through a body of water with alligators.
Alex is an expert in innovation, new work and marketing whose passion for our mission shines through every facet of his work. With his ability to present complex ideas in a simple and engaging way, he inspires people all over the world to take an active role in preserving our natural world.
His start-up from his studies took him all the way to Silicon Valley.
Host, Speaker & Author
As a podcaster and author, he regularly speaks as an expert at events.
The crane has been Alex’s favorite animal ever since he started studying moors – no discussion.
In 2021, Alex has read 100 books, most of them on the subject of environmental protection.

Rethinking moors: our plan
Why are moors protected so little compared to forests? This is often due to a poor image. Many people associate bogs with bad smells, creepy myths, cunning midges, danger and, in the worst case, bog bodies. Yet moors are magical ecosystems with superpowers.
