Our missionProtecting ecosystems & biodiversity for a brighter future
"Nothing leaves a deeper impression than the personal experience of being out in nature."
Guided by these words by Prof. Heinz Sielmann, his foundation and its projects pursue three key goals:
- Protecting and restoring refuges for rare species of animals and plants
- Guiding people towards a positive approach to nature
- Preserving the Heinz Sielmann nature film archive
The Heinz Sielmann Stiftung positions itself within the framework of international nature and climate protection efforts and clearly links its contributions with the internationally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), thereby fulfilling its global responsibility as an established German nature conservation foundation. The international projects of the Heinz Sielmann Stiftung focus on restoring ecosystem functions by reforesting selected areas together with local partners and communities.
