Elfrun Lindenthal has always been fascinated by water in all its forms – be it flowing or frozen, freshwater or salt water. So it’s no wonder that she would like to give something back to this particular element.

Since 2018, this qualified geo-ecologist has been working for EuroNatur. Here Elfrun coordinates the INTERREG project Sava TIES. This concerns the management of invasive plant species. In this EU-funded project, NGOs from five different countries work together and Elfrun, whose studies had a strong international focus, can put her experience to good use here. As part of her Masters, she spent a year in New Zealand researching the water balance of forested areas.

She says: “The impact of environmental factors is not just local; everything is connected with everything else. This becomes particularly clear in the conservation of bodies of flowing water. So I really identify with the transnational approach used in EuroNatur’s projects.”

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.
