Anna Maria Behrends


Anna Maria Behrends, who grew up in the idyllic southwest of Hamburg and at the picturesque Wörthsee in Bavaria, has been drawn to nature since childhood. After studying media technology, she initially developed and produced numerous factual entertainment formats for various public broadcasters, including the NDR series "Von Meisterhand - Traditionsberufe suchen Nachwuchs," which won the Herbert Quandt Media Award in 2012. In 2018, she then followed her heart's call for nature and species conservation topics and now implements them for Doclights / NDR Naturfilm as a producer. In 2021, she realized NDR Naturfilm's first online-only production as a director in Namibia: the species conservation series "Hannah goes wild" for the ARD Mediathek.
