Zoo of Wels



The Zoo of Wels is the oldest zoo in Upper Austria and is also regarded as an important local recreation area. The entrance is free and about 100 different species can be seen, most of them primates and tropical birds. The zoo takes part in many international breeding programmes and contributes greatly to the protection of local wild animals through the keeping and breeding of the Ural Owl and the wildcat.
 

National Park Thayatal



The 1.330 ha wide National Park Thayatal lies in the border area between Lower Austria and the Czech Republic and is joined to the Czech Národní Park Podyjí. The Thayatal with its steep deciduous forests is one of the most beautiful breakthrough valleys in Austria. Since 2007, the wildcat has been many times genetically identified - a comeback on silent paws.
 

Alpine zoo Innsbruck-Tirol



The Alpine Zoo Innsbruck is the highest zoo in Europe (750m), with a surface of approx. 4.1 ha. In this "theme zoo” of the alpine animal kingdom resides a unique collection of 150 animal species with 2.000 animals from the whole alpine area.
 

Central Office of the Austrian National Hunting Association



The nine National Hunting Associations are centralized in the Central Office of the Austrian National Hunting Association to jointly carry out supra-regional activities.
 

Natural History Museum Vienna



The Natural History Museum Vienna ranks among the greatest natural museums worldwide and is the most important one on this topic in Austria. It encompasses vast collections of natural specimens from the second half of the 18th century to the present.
 

The Wildcat Platform is also supported by vielfaltleben and Raiffeisen NÖ.



 
The campaign of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, vielfaltleben contributes to the preservation of biodiversity in Austria.
 
Raiffeisen is the strongest banking group in Austria. The wildcat gets particular support because it is a typical local wild species which enriches our wild fauna.
