I.N.A.

The Lieberoser Heide International Nature Exhibition (I.N.A.) is an innovative concept which has been developed as part of a strategic planning process with the state of Brandenburg and local stakeholders.

As a new exhibition format and a major event, comparable to Bundesgartenschau (Federal horticultural show) or international building/architecture exhibitions, it should develop the topics of biodiversity, wilderness, sustainable land use, environmental education and nature tourism for regional value added, as well as present exemplary projects at conferences and international meetings.

Ecological corridors

Brandenburg is an especially important transportation hub for wild animals with its proximity to Poland and its many near-natural bodies of water and forested areas. Important stepping stone biotopes are often isolated in the built-up cultivated landscape with streets and railroad routes cutting through them. Travelling wild animals like otters, red deer, beavers and wolfs run into insurmountable barriers in their search for food and mating partners. The Foundation is campaigning for the improvement of this situation with its project Ecological Corridor Southern Brandenburg (Ökologischer Korridor Südbrandenburg). Valuable forest and wetlands are being connected for the long term using green bridges, crossing-aids, forest conversion and the improvement of water habitats.

Research

Monitoring projects for different kinds of plants and animals are carried out on the grounds of Brandenburg Wilderness Foundation. An exciting area of research is, for example the return of wolves to Germany: using photo traps and trained observers, behaviour and new settlements of wolves are being investigated on the Foundation‘s properties. Brandenburg Wilderness Foundation oversees research work and takes part in the education of students by offering excursions.
Participants of the Voluntary Ecological Year and people doing civilian service get insight into the practice of research and learn how to map fens or collect insects, for example. The Foundation offers a broad spectrum of topics for dissertations and theses. Areas of research are for example natural succession on former military territories, retro-conversion of wetlands and development of fens, networking biotopes or environmental education. Research relationships with universities, institutes and other institutions of higher education are welcome.
