Research project on the bird protection island Riether Werder in Northern Germany
Veröffentlicht am 01.03.17
The island "Riether Werder" in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern/Germany, near the Baltic Sea on the border to Poland, has a supraregional significance as a bird protection island. It is located at the Neuwarper See on the south coast of the Szczecin Lagoon, an inner coastal water body in the estuary area of the Oder and Peene rivers. Rare waterfowl and birds of prey such as the white-tailed eagle live there, and it is a resting place for thousands of migratory birds in spring and autumn.
In order not to disturb their habitat it is forbidden to enter the island. Reed and wild green land dominate the area, and a Brielmaier motor mower is successfully used to meet the special requirements.
At the moment, a gullet research project of the University of Greifswald is taking place here, which we consider to be worthy of support: Read more here. Many thanks to everyone who helps!
