Hans Helmut Stoiber wrote the sonnet “The Discus” when he was only 17-years-old, and after submitting it to the Arts Competition at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he won a bronze medal. Stoiber later studied law and became a judge on the Provincial Court in Salzburg, and was an expert in criminal and nature conservation law. He spent much of his life supporting conservation causes and worked in biology and botany. In 1953 he became a member of the Society for Nature Conservation. In 2003 Stoiber was awarded the Golden Badge of Honour of the Naturschutzbund Salzburg. He also received the Alfred Töpfer Medal, the highest award from the European Federation of National Parks.
