However, what happens to the used equipment you trade in?

The Dutch non-profit organization Vogelbescherming Nederland (BirdLife Netherlands) is part of the globally active BirdLife International network, with whom ZEISS has a long-standing and close collaboration. Around the world BirdLife International is working to protect birds and nature, together with local communities, schools and birdwatchers. Access to optical equipment is key to success. Whether for environmental education in Burkina Faso or for dedicated bird counts in Indonesia, in many places binoculars and spotting scopes are needed.

The BirdLife Partner in The Netherlands, Vogelbescherming Nederland collects used binoculars and spotting scopes in order to give them a new life. In doing so, they are not only used for bird and nature conservation wherever they are needed, but have also enabled innumerable children to discover nature through impressive and inspiring (outdoor) experiences.

As part of the current cashback campaign, ZEISS are collecting binoculars from all manufacturers and brands in order to donate them to Vogelbescherming to support this campaign. Using Vogelbescherming’s many years of experience and BirdLife’s global network, ZEISS can give refurbished used equipment to as many people as possible.

BirdLife is delighted to be part of this new initiative of ZEISS. Used but well-functioning binoculars are of incredible value to many who work to protect nature around the world. Sharing used optical equipment is a great way to strengthen connections between birders and conservationists worldwide. We therefore hope that the ZEISS cashback campaign will be a success.

says Barend van Gemerden of BirdLife International.
