DZI - Donation Seal

EuroNatur receives the DZI Donation Seal of Approval

On completion of the comprehensive auditing procedure the EuroNatur Nature Heritage Foundation received the Donation Seal of Approval of the German Central Institute for Social Issues DZI in May 2006.

The awarding of this seal of approval was opened in 2004 to all organisations collecting donations (whereas formerly it was only open to institutions with a social programme). EuroNatur became one of the first to receive it in the area of nature conservation.

The award is presented for the period of a year after intensive examination in which not only the  accounting but also the fulfilment of statutory aims and integrity in fundraising have been subjected to close scrutiny.

The criteria for the award of the donation seal are as follows:

 

  • accurate, unambiguous and factual fundraising in text and image,
  • verifiable, economical and statutory use of funds with due regard to relevant tax regulations,
  • clear and comprehensible financial reporting,
  • auditing of the annual report and its presentation to DZI,
  • internal supervision of the leadership by an independent supervisory body,
  • strict exclusion of the use of premiums, commissions or profit sharing for the procuration of donations.

 

This means that you may rest assured: donations that reach us do a lot of good, directly benefitting the protection of wild animals and their habitats and they are a genuine contribution to the preservation of natural resources on which the wellbeing of both humans and animals depends.

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.

Lynx

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.

Wolf

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.
