Species conservation

Our contribution to the protection of endangered species

Being one of the most important institutions when it comes to the protection of endangered bird species around the world, Weltvogelpark Walsrode enjoys its international reputation. In cooperation with other national and international organisations and zoos around the world, we are constantly working on the protection of rare and endangered species and the conservation of their natural habitat worldwide. Weltvogelpark Walsrode has reached its goal many times by breeding endangered bird species in the protected environment for the first time, gathering specific knowledge and developing techniques which contribute to the survival in its natural habitat. Breeding projects in Weltvogelpark combined with such centers in their home countries have repeatedly led to the reintroduction of populations in their natural environment.

Sadly, every day we receive news of dramatic reductions of natural habitats and ecosystems threatening Earths biodiversity. All possible efforts to protect endangered animals are necessary and of the utmost importance for future generations.
