Annette Spangenberg began her support of the foundation working at the office in Ludwigsburg directly after taking her degree in landscape conservancy at the Nürtingen Polytechnic and she  joined the EuroNatur team in 2002.

In 2004 she moved to Radolfzell and it is here that she is in charge of a wide range of EuroNatur projects: among them are the protection of the Balkan lynx in Albania and Macedonia, the protection of wolves and the projects for the protection of the Monk Seals in Greece and off the Atlantic coast of Mauritania.

In her own words: “It appeals to me to be working Europe-wide and it particularly interests me to get to know people from a different cultural and social background, to work together and with their help make the projects a success. I have great respect for our partners in countries such as Albania and Macedonia. Despite the lack of recognition for nature conservation in their countries they don't give up but keep on working for our common goals.”

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.
