Our Position on Hunting

ZEISS sees hunting as part of human culture, active protection of nature and species, and in this way as part of our today’s society. ZEISS understands hunting in a legal, sustainable, ethical and conservational way. We desist from hunting on endangered species, from killing animals for fun, without reasons or hunting for trophies only. We clearly oppose the inappropriate use of firearms. Our products help hunters to carry out their service to nature as responsibly as possible.
