They focus on two successful birding activities

Signed on the dotted line: On 9 October 2017, Deputy Executive Director of NABU Angelika Richter and Head of Consumer Optics at Carl Zeiss AG Jörg Schmitz concluded an agreement in Wetzlar regarding a long-term collaboration between NABU and Carl Zeiss Sports Optics.

ZEISS will sponsor the two NABU hands-on activities: Hour of the Garden Birds and Hour of the Winter Birds. The goal of the partnership is for the signatories to provide new impetus for enjoying the beauty of nature and for birdwatching topics. That’s why ZEISS is also supporting a video series on all aspects of birdwatching.

“We would like to use our optics to offer nature observers a truly exceptional experience. The collaboration with NABU feeds into our passion for the natural world and we are looking forward to many joint projects and ideas.”

Jörg Schmitz, Head of Consumer Optics at ZEISS

NABU’s Deputy Executive Director Angelika Richter:

“We are looking forward to working with Carl Zeiss Sports Optics and will be undertaking plenty of interesting projects together.”

NABU and Carl Zeiss Sports Optics have worked together on various projects over the years: Since 1984, the Carl Zeiss Bird Station on the extraction site for marine clay on Fährmannssand island is looked after by NABU Hamburg. ZEISS supports other selected NABU centers.
