    Strong Together in Uncertain Times

    In times of global uncertainty and crises, the importance of solidarity and mutual support is increasing. In close cooperation with NABU, Zoo Berlin, and Tierpark Berlin, we support projects that continue their important work despite the adverse circumstances of the war.

    Rehabilitation center for brown bears

    In cooperation with NABU, we support the rehabilitation center for brown bears in Ukraine's Synevyr National Park. The center not only plays a key role in the care and reintegration of orphaned or injured brown bears into their natural environment but also focuses on environmental education measures. Our activities have benefited over 5,800 children, including many from vulnerable refugee families. In special workshops, they had the opportunity to escape everyday life, build birdhouses, observe animals, and listen to fairy tales.


    Nature reserve Elanetskyi

    Thanks to generous donations, we are able to support an important nature conservation project in Ukraine in collaboration with the Ukrainian Society for the Protection of Birds and NABU. The war had destroyed the fence of the 70-hectare Elanetskyi Steppe nature reserve. Together, we repaired it, involving the local staff simultaneously. This area is home to the bison, a key species in the ecosystem that plays a crucial role in maintaining the natural balance.
