Austria’s nature conservation union | naturschutzbund | Österreich is a non-profit, politically independent association in which everyone loving nature is welcome. Today, about 80,000 members are working for a common goal.
Our objective is to preserve a rich flora and fauna for us and for future generations. We protect nature and the environment because we know that there is an inseparable link between humans and all living beings on Earth.
What we want
- Preserve endangered habitats and species for the long term
- More nature in cultivated landscapes, in forests and settlements
- More space for nature
What we do
| naturschutzbund | is active in 4 main fields:
- Nature conservation in practical life
- Nature conservation research
- Public relations work and lobbying
- Nature and environmental education, youth work
The major part of the work of the nature conservation union is accomplished by members on an honorary basis. A federal office in Salzburg and professional establishments in all Federal Provinces provide effective support to the volunteers.
How we achieve our goals
As an association | naturschutzbund | depends on members and supporters. Only with the idealism and personal commitment of countless people in Austria the nature conservation union has, since 1913, been able to stand up for nature effectively. Dynamic nature conservation work has been carried out for almost 100 years, for example the protection of the Vienna Woods, the rescue of the waterfalls at Krimml and the present project “vielfaltleben”. And we go on!
