Foundation for Bear- Wildlife- and Species Protection, Alternative Bärenpark Worbis gGmbH

The Alternative Bear Park Worbis was founded in 1996 as an innovative nature and species conservation project of the FOUNDATION for BEARS. On a five-hectare area in the Eichsfeld region of Thuringia, bears, wolves and various other animal species are offered a natural, animal-friendly home. Natural enrichment is used to rediscover species-typical behaviour in the open-air areas. The park's educational work includes environmental education events and adventure programmes as well as support for scientific research.

Core competencies for the network: Behavioural research (bears, wolves, lynxes)
