Expert-Guided Field Trip

People use nature in a variety of ways and frequently interfere with the habitats of wild animals. Human activities often take place at the expense of wildlife and do not always go easy. Agriculture and forestry, tourism and outdoor leisure activities are a high priority in our lives. However, terms such as conservation, species protection, and natural cycles on the other hand are very abstract to most.

In this workshop we look into human activities and the impacts they have on wildlife. We discuss areas of possible conflict that arise from agriculture, forestry, hunting, tourism, and domestic animals and investigate possible solutions to enable a positive coexistence of humans and wild animals. We get to know the objectives of national parks and learn about national park management, we experience hands-on conservation and what animal welfare is all about. What happens to injured wild animals that can no longer survive on their own in the wild, and are zoos finally out of date?
We will visit the Neusiedlersee and Donau-Auen National Park as well as Schloss Hof on the Slovakian border.
