Freising projects in the Süddeutsche Zeitung

We are very pleased that the Süddeutsche Zeitung reports on the two new projects in Freising, Bavaria, for the protection of moor soils and endangered bird species.

In the first project, a valuable retreat for highly endangered bird species is to be created. In the modern agricultural landscape, they do not find a suitable habitat or enough food. The project counteracts this with, among other things, targeted spring grazing by endangered Murnau-Werdenfels cattle and forest sheep. This creates a favourable situation for the offspring during the birds' breeding season.

In the second project, grazing with these same endangered breeds of domestic animals is used to maintain a bog soil area and develop it in such a way that a special habitat for native wildlife and plant species is created. This is to show that less intensive grazing can be a high-quality use for wet moors in terms of nature conservation.

Supporters are still being sought for both projects. The projects can only be implemented if all conservation certificates are financed by February 2022.
