A major reason for the endangerment of the dormouse is the decline in intact mixed forests with old trees, which offer the animals opportunities to retreat and a safe place to raise their young. In our commercial forests there is a lack of these natural nesting opportunities. We can counteract this development by adding nest boxes. Our researchers know from long-term studies on dormice in the Vienna Woods that the animals like to use nesting boxes. Another positive side effect: other endangered animals such as the dormouse or many birds also raise their young in the nesting boxes. Please support us in procuring new nesting boxes with your valuable donation.
