Dr. Felix Lorenz

Felix was born in 1967 in Lauenburg, Germany, as the second son of a captain on freightships operating around the African continent. Felix got interested in seashells in early childhood. Traveling with his parents to Tanzania and other African countries allowed him to deepen his fascination, especially for the cowries (Cypraeidae). In 1989 Felix began studying Biology at the  Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany. In 1993, the book "A Guide to Worldwide Cowries" was published - a cooperation with his mentor Prof. Dr. Alex Hubert († 1999), professor of Physics at the University of Erlangen. He graduated in 1998 with a diploma in zoology and a PhD thesis on the cowry Monetaria annulus two years later. From 1999 to 2004 he was custodian of the Institute of Zoology. He lectured general zoology, invertebrate morphology, parasitology, and paleoecology (rapid climate change in the Eocene) based on insect fossils in Baltic amber. He trained students in scanning electron microscopy. He also assisted PhD students working in the fields of malacology and parasitology.

In 1997, he met his companion Jana Kratzsch, biologist, photographer, and avid scuba diver. In 2004, he decided to end his university career to lead an independent life as traveller, shell-hunter, and entrepreneur. The two of them have since conducted more than 75 diving expeditions all over the world, focusing on the discovery of new species, recording molluscan biodiversity, documenting the condition of habitats, evaluating impacts of climate change and pollution, usually in areas rarely visited by biologists.

In 2012, Felix and Dr. Michael A. Mont first met and discussed the options of taking their passion for the Mollusca to another level. Their meeting was the initial spark for setting up the Molluscan Science Foundation, for which Felix has created the foundation's collection database and among other things, assembled the concept and ID-cards of the school project.
 
Felix has published several books and numerous papers on the Cypraeoidea (cowry-like species) and other molluscan families. He has also contributed a book chapter on parasitic molluscs.  He has discovered more than 250 new species of molluscs, and eleven new molluscan genera.

He is collaborating with various institutions and environmental groups:
• Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle (MNHN), Paris, France.
• The Smithsonian, Washington, USA.
• Senckenberg Museum, Frankfurt, Germany.
• Haus der Natur, Cismar, Germany.
• Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Acency (HEPCA), Egypt.
• Chiapponi Lorenz Seashell Foundation (CLSF), Lecco, Italy. 
• Molluscan Science Foundation, Inc., Owings Mills, MD, USA.
He is referee and scientific advisor of various magazines dedicated to molluscan study, e.g. Conchylia, Gloriamaris, Basteria,  Zootaxa, as well as, La Conchiglia, Journal of Molluscan Studies, Molluscan Research, and Archiv für Molluskenkunde.
