‚Über die gegenwärtige Situation von Wölfen in Deutschland‘
Since 2000 there have once again been wolves in Germany. After the discovery of a pack living in Saxony caused much attention, people’s relationship with these new neighbours has normalised. Meanwhile about 40 wolf families live in German wilderness areas. The question of whether wolves can survive in Germany is not a question of biology or ecology, but a question of the prejudices, worries and fears of some people. For this reason NABU has been running the Willkommen Wolf project since 2005.
