Start of one of the largest european species conservation projects
The Northern Bald Ibis is a migratory bird which was native in Central Europe until the 17th century, before it became extinct due to the huge hunting pressure. Today the Northern Bald Ibis is one of the most endangered bird species worldwide. In the context of an EU project (LIFE+ Biodiversity), with partners in Austria, Italy and Germany, the species is to be reintroduced in Europe.
Your personal Northern Bald Ibis
Support our project by adopting a Northern Bald Ibis for a year.
All donors get an adoption certificate with a picture and the name of the adopted bird and a small thank you gift.
With some of the best pictures of the past year we again compiled a calendar that will accompany the fans of the Northern Bald Ibis through the year 2017.
From November 30 to December 01, a LIFE+ veterinary meeting, organized by the LIFE+ Northern Bald Ibis team and hosted by Zoo Vienna, took place. It was a quite mixed group: 25 people from 4 nations participated. Out of that, 12 were veterinaries, 12 were scientists (and partly also veterinaries) and nine were conservationists (and partly also scientists).
