Projects in America

 
 
 Lower Yuna National Park

Lower Yuna National Park

A new management plan is being developed in the national park. The restoration of the mangrove forests, but also awareness-raising measures and new activities in ecotourism will be considered.

 Transforming Tourism

Transforming Tourism

Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic are considered biodiversity hotspots. Sustainable destination developments secure the livelihoods of tourism workers and the conservation of biodiversity.

 
 
 Biodiversity-friendly cultivation of bananas and pineapples

Biodiversity-friendly Cultivation of Bananas and Pineapples

In Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic, bananas and pineapples are often grown in monocultures for export. The protection of biodiversity should be integrated into the value chains of both fruits.

 

Projects in Europe

 
 
 Inspiring for Biodiversity

Inspiring for Biodiversity

How can we get people excited about the topic of biodiversity? Only a balanced and intact environment secures the stock of ecosystems, genetic diversity and the wealth of species.

 Nature without Barriers

Nature without Barriers

Within the European Union, tourism is an important issue for everyone, especially for people with disabilities. We help to create Barrier-free paths to meet mobile restrictions.

 
 Protection and Environmental Development of Cultural Landscapes

Protection of Living Cultural Landscapes in Europe

There are hardly any natural habitats left in Central and Western Europe. This makes the value of historic cultural landscapes all the greater. We are committed to giving nature conservation the attention it needs.

 

Projects in Asia

 
 
 Mitigating conflicts between humans and elephants

Mitigating conflicts between humans and elephants

In the border area between Nepal and India, the protection of Asian elephants is being strengthened. With the participation of the local population, the interests of land use are brought into harmony with the habitats of the animals.

 Hovsgol Lake National Park Management in Mongolia

Hovsgol Lake National Park Management in Mongolia

Increasing numbers of tourists secure additional income for traditionally living nomads, but at the same time the visitors leave more than just footprints in nature: the increasing amount of waste has to be managed.
