Service description

The bird sanctuary fulfills numerous reporting obligations from national and international protection agreements for birds and represents bird protection interests in planning and construction processes with the help of nature and species protection laws at federal and state level. Findings about the development of national bird populations, necessary bird protection measures and joint monitoring projects and much more are exchanged with all other German bird sanctuaries.

The Hamburg bird sanctuary also accepts calls for help - if birds are in danger or because you need help if birds are causing problems. Below you will find our contact details.
