For more than half a century of his 79 years of age, biologist and ecologist Michael Succow has been working on nature conservation (especially swamps and peatlands) in Europe. In 1997, at the age of 56, he received the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the Alternative Nobel Prize. Every year the award is presented to fighters for human rights, nature conservation, and peace. This award was once received by American programmer Edward Snowden and environmentalist Bill McKibben.

In his research, he devoted most of his attention to swamps and peatlands. Today, his typology of wetlands is used as a classification standard. Thanks to the work and support of Michael Succow, dozens of national parks, reserves (the territory where the main object of protection is one of the components of the natural complex. - Ed.) and other environmental sites were created in several countries such as Georgia, Azerbaijan, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Russia.
