BIO-DIVERSITY

SDG 15 "Life on Land" aims to protect, to restore and to use eco-systems in a sustainable way. This includes sustainable forest management as well as the protection of bio-diversity from habitat loss or invasive neophytes. We have several projects that are making a direct contribution in this area.

Lead-free game

Although alternatives have been available for some time now, ammunition with lead is still widely in use. Birds of prey, such as the golden eagle, can ingest pieces of the projectile together with the innards of the dead game and this in turn can result in lead poisoning. Together with the Karwendel Nature Park, the Seefeld Tourist Board wants to bring "lead-free game" to the region's tables.

Natural green spaces

Habitat loss due to land sealing/development and pesticide use is becoming a problem in Tyrol. To counteract the negative effect on the insect population, the Tourist Board is creating species-rich, natural green spaces - for more bio-diversity in residential areas (see Downloads) – and has already successfully converted over 3,000 m² of grassy areas into flower meadows.

Natural golf course

Golfing among bees and butterflies on a pesticide-free golf course? The Seefeld-Wildmoos golf course is proof that this is possible. The golf club is steadily reducing its pesticide treatment and limiting watering to a minimum.

Natural woodland

Aerial shots show that the sunny Seefeld Plateau is actually very densely-forested. To ensure that the woods not only protect the air and water, but are also climate-friendly and bio-diverse, the Tourist Board is leading by example and restructuring its forest areas to show how sustainable forestry can be achieved.

Partnership with the Karwendel Nature Park

We have Austria's largest nature park right on our doorstep and as well as being a Natura 2000 protected area of great European significance, it is also one of our long-standing partners. The co-operation ranges from outdoor tours and visitor management concepts to the Holzerhütte (Loggers’ Museum) and the Scharnitz Nature Park & Information Centre. The new “Nature Park Designer Project” aimed at businesses aims to strengthen the existing co-operation.
