Cables run underground and only small boxes are available as distributors. As a result, many transformer towers are demolished.
In our modern world, it is difficult for many wild animals to find suitable places to shelter and to raise youngsters. A converted transformer house offers many options for wild guests. There is a stork nest on the roof. Falcons, owls and bats find refuge in the roof structure.
Nesting aids for wild bees and other insects also find their place here.
The space under the eaves is often used by swallows.
With a few modifications around the transformer house, grass snakes, hedgehogs, toads and slow worms find a place to stay for the winter.
The habitat gained in and around the transformer house is maintained and maintained by the Görlitz zoo.
