The Rhinoceroses – The Battle for its Survival Continues

The protection of many animals is nearly impossible today without zoos. One example here is the rhinoceros, whose population is diminishing massively worldwide. For this reason, the Academy together with the IZW Leibniz Institut für Zoo- und Wildtierforschung Berlin (Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research Berlin) has been committed to a special species protection and conservation breeding project at Salzburg Zoo.

The project "Condor" in Bolivia

It stands for courage, foresight, strength, pride and love of freedom: the condor. That is why this bird - like the eagle in Europe - plays a very special role in the self-image of the Andean states. The Academy has initiated a unique project at the La Paz Zoo to protect the "King of the Air" of South America, who is under great threat of extinction.

The Threatened World of African Wild Dogs

He dedicates his life to the painted dogs, as the wild dogs in Africa are called: Dr. Gregory Rasmussen. He has been fighting for a quarter of a century in Zimbabwe for the protection of this extremely endangered species which is particularly challenged by poachers’ traps. The Akademie supports him in his work.

Two Elephants and their New Home

For 30 years, the elephant cows Savana (44) and Tamara (43) had been accustomed to their enclosure in the Zoological Garden Pistoia in Italy. Finally in October 2015, they were given new outdoor facilities with much more space than before. In their new enclosure, the animals now enjoy sand piles, tree trunks, ponds, real trees and a whole range of other features for their behavioral enrichment.

Discover with us the fascinating world of animals

Why young giraffe bulls have what it takes to become prima ballerinas, when ostriches discover their dancing talent, why lions often stay hungry and why hyenas are far better than their reputation - answers to all these questions and much more worth knowing about the world of animals. From 2019 on, the Academy will provide you with answers in very special trips under the direction of Prof. Dr. Henning Wiesner.

Milk for Orphaned Elephant Babies

There are still enormous amounts of money made in Africa from poaching. The results are fatal. Baby elephants in particular lose their mothers and often suffer painful deaths by starvation.

Protected Habitat for Elephants in Myanmar

The trip in November to Myanmar taken by Prof. Dr. Henning Wiesner, Dr. Julia Gräfin Maltzan and Dr. Miriam Wiesner of the Akademie für Zoo- und Wildtierschutz e.V. was arduous. The assignment: to examine and treat 34 elephants. The animals had been used for logging in the timber industry. Now they were looking forward to spending lives in safety and rest in a new Unesco Biosphere Reserve.
