Prof. Dr. Hubert Weiger has been involved with EuroNatur for many years as co-opted member of the board. The former Chairman of BUND (Friends of the Earth Germany) has been a member of the EuroNatur board since 2009.

“In founding EuroNatur the former chairman of the Federal BUND organisation, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Thielcke, created a nature conservation organisation which set itself the central task of surmounting in a positive sense the many national borders dividing Europe. I, too, see it as an essential task of national organisations to take part in work at the international level.”

Therefore the experienced nature conservationist and chairman of a national organisation regards it as an important goal to intensify cooperation between EuroNatur and other nature conservation organisations. For it is only if we work together that we can meet and deal with the scientific and political challenges of nature conservation of our times. Topping the list of priorities is the maintenance of biodiversity and climate protection. EuroNatur makes significant contributions to both. I am delighted that as a confirmed member of the board I shall be in a position to work closely with EuroNatur.”

Brown Bear

Seen as a predator with a sweet tooth, a much loved model for soft toys yet outlawed and hunted down as a blood-thirsty beast: the brown bear.


Lithe and skillful, the lynx is a shy, lone hunter. If it is to survive in Europe and if the population is to be undisturbed enough to increase in number, intensive protection measures will be required.


Mankind's relationship to the wolf is ambivalent – on the one hand the animal is admired as a skilled and untiring hunter but also ill-famed as Isengrim the bloodthirsty and persecuted.

Migratory birds

Always to be where living conditions are best: this is a luxury that only those with wings can afford.

Green Belt

Across 12 500 kilometres (over 7700 miles) the Green Belt stretches along the one-time Iron Curtain forming a corridor of habitats for an exceptional diversity of species.

Rivers in Europe

Where in Germany can you still find the original wild rivers? You'll need a magnifying glass. But in the Balkans such utopias still exist on a large scale, even today.
