A Busy Year – Despite Covid 19

Approximately 11 years ago, Dr Julia Gräfin Maltzan and Prof. Dr. Henning Wiesner founded the Academy for the Protection of Zoo Animals and Wildlife. Since then, they have done a lot for international as well as local animal, nature, and species conservation – even during the coronavirus pandemic. The Academy founders discuss the events and projects of 2020.

Where are Two-spot and Seven-spot Ladybirds?

Children love them; adults mostly find them annoying: we’re talking about ladybirds. Our native species are being increasingly displaced by Asian ‘immigrants’. A special project is aimed at actively pursuing species conservation for the tiny spotted, six-legged insects.

Protecting wildlife with smart transmitters

Icarus is one of the most sensational projects in animal welfare and nature and species conservation. The Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior under the direction of Prof. Dr. Martin Wikelski equips animals with miniature transmitters. The transmitter receiving antenna is located on the International Space Station ISS. The goal is to study the movement of various species to better protect them.

Rescuing Giants: Tamika is Growing and Flourishing

The Academy could not have imagined a more wonderful present last year for its 10-year commemoration: The birth of the third rhinoceros calf in the Salzburg Zoo. Without the help of the Academy and science, this young female animal would not be alive.

The Battle against Poaching

Poaching in Africa continues to be extremely lucrative – with catastrophic consequences for the animal world and biodiversity. Rhinoceroses are on the edge of extinction; elephant babies lose their mothers. Most of them agonizingly starve to death. Without special wild animal rescue stations, it would be impossible to meet the challenge of this grisly development.

Juvenile Habitats for Lacustrine Brown Trout and Danube Bleak

They are truly extraordinary creatures: the formally royal Lake Trout and the Danube Bleak are naturally only native to lakes in the Alps and alpine foothills. Unfortunately, their populations are endangered. Humans are to blame because they are denying the fish their specific reproduction strategy.
