Berchtesgadener Land Wild Bee Project

Promoting near-natural and diverse habitats

From the peaks of the Berchtesgaden Alps to the hilly foothills, many rare species of flora and fauna can be found in the local cultural landscape. But no species represents an intact landscape as thoroughly as the wild bee. That is why the protection of their habitats is the focus of the wild bee project – in doing so, we are not only protecting the wild bee, but also numerous other types of animals and plants.

Wild bees need natural and diverse habitats: colorful flower meadows, flowering gardens and orchards, varied landscapes with hedges, trees and edges of forests. Preserving and reproducing the wide range of flowers in the Berchtesgadener Land is the ambitious goal of the wild bee project. This project is a joint initiative of the Berchtesgadener Land Biosphere Region and the National Natural Landscapes e.V., supported by funding from the Allianz insurance company. It is realized in collaboration with many regional actors such as municipalities, associations, schools, companies, farms and private individuals. The UN Decade expert jury was very impressed by these activities and so awarded the Berchtesgadener Land wild bee project a UN Decade Project in 2019.
