In the summer of 2017, the Rügen Island Brewery, in partnership with the WWF, started a sea eagle project, and is committed to preserving the habitat of the proud bird on the island of Rügen.
The brewery has donated 15,000 euros to meet the cost of the project.
Rügen is both our home and our source of inspiration. The island’s unique nature and its biodiversity is a gift whose preservation is also a great responsibility for all of us.
The Sea Eagle on Rügen
The “King of the Sky” is also endangered here on Rügen. Forestry, hunting, and tourists who wander forest areas without due consideration threaten the animals’ habitat or disturb them during the rearing of their young.
However, with the aid of animal protection organizations such as the WWF it has been possible to increase the population to 750 breeding pairs over the last 20 years, ca. 350 of which live in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.
The Project Goal
With its commitment to the sea eagle on Rügen, the Island Brewery not only supports the work of the WWF but also aims to send out a signal and raise awareness for the protection of this unique bird amongst Rügen’s citizens and visitors to the island.
The WWF carries out important work for the preservation of suitable habitats for the majestic bird. It carries out renaturation measures, promotes the development of wild forests, establishes aerie protection zones, and campaigns for lead-free ammunition.
