Biodiversity of Berlin Wetlands

Spandauer Forst

Together with biologists Korbinian Pacher and Frederic Griesbaum, participants discover a unique wetland in Spandauer Forst. The focus is on the specific characteristics of this habitat, its biodiversity and the historical context of this unique water body. The focus is on ecological relationships using various examples from the animal kingdom. Rare aquatic species such as amphibians and insects find a suitable habitat here, as do various birds, reptiles and mammals. As a truly unique nature experience on Berlin's urban territory, the excursion will not only provide interesting insights into this lesser-known ecosystem, but will also highlight its fragility and need for protection.
