Transparent Civil Society Initiative

EuroNatur has joined the Transparent Civil Society initiative (InitiativeTransparente Zivilgesellschaft). 

Signatories to the initiative make a voluntary commitment to publish ten pieces of information about their organisation on their website. These include its constitution, the names of the key decision takers and information about the source and allocation of funds and the staffing structure. 

Voluntary pledge

We, the EuroNatur foundation, promise to make the information detailed hereafter available to the public by placing it together with this declaration on our website where it can easily be found and, if requested, to send such information by post or by email. 

1. Name, location, address and year founded:

EuroNatur ( European Nature Heritage Fund) 

Location: Radolfzell

Address: Westendstr. 3, 78315 Radolfzell, Germany

Year founded: 1987

2. Full constitution and information on the goals of our organisation

Here you can download our constitution as a PDF (310 kb).

The EuroNatur foundation’s goal is not only to protect nature but also to promote the ecological development of the rural areas in question. Because without taking serious consideration of the needs of the population, it will not be possible to achieve success in conserving natural resources over the long term. This is why EuroNatur always works closely with local partner organisations and the people on site.

Regional development and nature conservation go hand in hand in this, creating more jobs and improved quality of life.

Here you can find out more about EuroNatur’s goals and central concerns.

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.
