Stork nest

The white storks build their nests themselves and raise their offspring.

Nevertheless, there are fewer and fewer places for storks to build their nests. We support them so that their stock can recover and develop.

Installation at dizzying heights

- a difficult undertaking.

With the help of lifting platforms the stork nest is installed, cleaned and repaired regularly.

Water can accumulate in old stork nests during heavy rainfall so that the young birds drown.

Risk factors for the white stork

The breeding success of the storks is not enough in Germany

to compensate for the natural losses. The increase in populations results primarily from an influx of storks from regions with higher breeding success. Numerous dangers still make life difficult for the white stork.

Dangers for the storks:


-Habitat loss

- Electricity death

- Dangers on the journey to the South
