A major focus of our foundation is the strengthening of environmental awareness, especially through environmental education: In the case of children, it is particularly important for us to be emotionally oriented, to experience wilderness as a very essential element; we give young volunteers the opportunity to become actively involved in certain projects and to train their sense of responsibility for their own consumption, climate-friendly behaviour and political action.
In our conservation work, we concentrate more and more on the establishment and support of protected areas. Our commitment ranges from small projects that fulfil important tasks in existing protected areas to long-term commitment for their new designation and networking: The highest goal is the free development of undisturbed nature and the connectivity of valuable habitats, e.g. for migratory birds in Ramsar protected areas. In some places, human-influenced habitats are also particularly worth preserving and can be protected, for example, through the concept of large-scale biosphere reserves.
