Nothing happens in living nature that is not connected to the whole.

Scientific Cooperation

We cooperate with well-known research institutes in order to better understand the processes and interconnections in the ecosystem temperate rainforest. Our conservation and Environmental Ambassador projects are supported with scientific research and accompanied by subject matter experts. Partners include the Helmholtz center for environmental research (UFZ), the Senckenberg Nature Research Society, the Technical University Dresden, the Johannes-Gutenberg-University Mainz and the Bamfield Marine Science Center. We carry out field studies and laboratory examinations together with well-known scientists of these institutions. The collected data is the basis for computer simulations and models. In this way, we are, for example, able to research the biodiversity and carbon cycles in our protected areas.

Creating an inventory of the nature areas serves:

  • understanding the ecosystem
  • determining biodiversity to use as an important argument for conservation
  • education programs with schools and the general public
  • long-term monitoring
