About us


BioPhilia S.a.S. was established in 2009. The mission statement consists of supporting sensible approaches to ecological and environmental topics through studies, researches and advising projects. Also, by supporting and co-training all those people in charge with natural resource management in the South of Italy, BioPhilia S.a.S. develops and carries on specific researches into wildlife and, in particular, into a specific branch called avi-fauna (birds characterizing a period, region or environment).
BioPhilia S.a.S. works in partnership with high-profile professional figures provided with expertise in whole environmental field, with specific knowledge of naturalistic, biological, forest, geological and topographic aspects (and also with specific knowledge of informative systems).
By constant cooperation with several Research Centres, BioPhilia S.a.S. is able to provide Public Institutions and Private Companies with its technical support to cope with those different topics that need to be dealt with.
BioPhilia S.a.S. plays its economic role in favour of members and contributors with peculiar attention at the society ethics, at the community and at the future generations, involving all its partners in actions and decisions related to the effects these studies have on the interested areas.
The integration between different professional skills based on comparison, research and study, is the basic principle of BioPhilia S.a.S. activities. The main aim of this principle, which the mission statement is constantly based on, means promoting responsible actions towards nature and all living creatures.
We are persuaded that sharing and relying on 


Gianni Palumbo

I was born in 1968 and I am from Basilicata region (South of Italy). I'm an ornithologist-naturalist. For several years I worked for NGOs involved in environmental protection and conservation.
Currently I am a national member of "Forum Ambientalista" (a conservation group). Before this, I was the national manager of the Species and Research branch and, immediately after, of the Biodiversity branch at LIPU.
As a freelance worker I am based in Basilicata region, but I receive assignments to work in several areas of the South of Italy and the Mediterranean basin.
I take part into many environmental impact projects and assessments by analyzing the different components related to Wildlife, Ecosystem and Landscape. I am an expert in fauna studies and in monitoring alternate energy production systems (especially wind and photovoltaic systems) and take part into studies and researches related to fauna restoration as well.
I have written several books related to nature and published lots of articles related to the same topic on scientific magazines.
I am the sole manager of BioPhilia S.a.S. www.biophilia.eu

In order to support our mission statement and reach for the related objectives, our team takes advantage of cooperating with biologists, naturalists, geologists, engineers, architects and so on. Among these cooperators there are very specialized figures like a chiropter expert, a landscape expert, a ringer and an entomologist.
Thanks to their contribution our society offers different kinds of services and gives a better feedback to the environmental preservation necessities.
