He started working as veterinarian, and after the war he became director of the destroyed Frankfurt zoo. Under his directorate Frankfurt zoo was not only rebuilt and enlarged, but also became a synonym for modern animal husbandry internationally. Radio and TV made him the best known zoologist of Germany. His TV series called "A Place for Animals" was broadcast from 1956 till the end of the 1980s. International fame came with documentary movies about African wildlife. Among his best known films are "Kein Platz fuer Wilde Tiere" (1956) and "Serengeti darf nicht sterben" (1959), which is the only German-language documentary film to receive an OSCAR.
