The protection of Europe’s wildlife, the preservation of its habitats and the provision of a nature-friendly economic perspective for local people – that’s what the people who work for EuroNatur constantly strive to achieve. Since the Foundation’s inception, we have established a powerful network of partner organisations, scientists and conservation practitioners.
In keeping with our motto “Connecting people and nature”, we promote sustainable development in rural areas, particularly in regions of Europe that are seldom the focus of media coverage. We work to gain acceptance and awareness of nature conservation as well as to establish long-term relationships and achieve success in our project areas.
We manage this work, through our team of project leaders and our public relations and administrative staff, from our office in Radolfzell, Lake Constance. We also have a small office in Brussels which enables us to be near to decision-makers and government officials.
EuroNatur’s team of employed staff is supported by the Presiding Committee and the Board of Trustees whose members serve in a voluntary capacity. Both boards are made up of dedicated and motivated people who are committed to the preservation of Europe’s natural heritage. With their expertise, and sometimes decades of conservation experience, they support the Foundation in matters relating to EuroNatur’s strategic orientation and social anchoring.
In 1995, EuroNatur Foundation established a wholly owned subsidiary, EuroNatur Service GmbH – a limited company. This small but efficient service provider publishes and sells landscape and wildlife calendars, its own series of guidebooks on EuroNatur’s project regions as well as a wide range of other reference books and exclusive items. The products can be found in the company’s online shop. EuroNatur Service GmbH also coordinates the annual photography competition “Europe’s Natural Treasures” and supports the work of EuroNatur Foundation by providing administrative services.
