Naturefund buys an orchards near the eagle owl nest, to secure the hunting grounds of the Eagle owls, as well as Habitat for numerous other rare species. The OWL was in Central Europe due to persecution and the strong use of pesticides almost eradicated. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Marc Lore. Intensive protective measures resulted in the 1980s however, that his stocks slowly recovered. The largest European OWL breeds in the vicinity of Limburg. Here Naturefund buys an orchards near the eagle owl nest together with the Hessian society of Ornithology and nature protection currently, to secure the hunting grounds of the Eagle owls, as well as Habitat for numerous other rare species.
Naturefund searches now 100 godfathers and godmothers to complete the purchase of the meadow and makes a very special gift: owls for Christmas! There are not only natural paradises in distant lands, also at our doorstep there are habitats that need protection. Orchards are doing not so spectacular as tropical rain forest, and yet they are unique in their diversity. These orchards Limburg is dotted with ancient, gnarled fruit trees, including a Goldparmane, a type of Apple from the 17 century. The semi-dry turf around the old trees is an Eldordo for butterflies in the summer. But the surroundings is the shadow of the Eagle owls, when he silently slides with his mighty swing in search of prey across the meadow at night.
Together with the Hessische Gesellschaft fur Ornithologie und Naturschutz (HGON) Naturefund wants to buy this area and secure it permanently for the nature. Now in November, the fruit trees are now in the Winteruhe, but care and protection measures are continued. The semi-dry turf was mowed to a third, because the remaining grass and herb seeds are important for many species of birds that long can feed on the seeds in the winter. The mowing estate was piled up in two places, and mixed with branches.
