Netzwerk Blühender Bodensee

For a blooming Lake Constance region

Field of action: Nature and Lake Conservation

Project goals: networking, knowledge exchange and capactiy building for communities, farmers, beekepers and companies that are interested in a pollinator friendly mangement of their green areas.

Project area: international Lake Constance area

Duration: since 2009

Background

Pollinating insects such as bees, wild bees, butterflies and hoverflies are important indicators for the condition of a landscape. The decline in pollinating insects, also in the Lake Constance region, indicates that the landscape quality is degrading. Biodiverse habitats are becoming more scarce due to the increasing agricultural intensity and the increase in land use. Especially in the summer months, there is little to no food supply left.

 

Implementation

The “Netwerk Blühender Bodensee” advises farmers, municipalities, beekepers, authorities, companies and garden owners. The goal is to make the Lake Constance region more biodiverse and flower-rich again and therefore increase the number of pollinating insects. The network organises target group orientated excursions, workshops and events, and disseminates pratical information.
