Krautsand: the large-scale nature conservation project

Since 2020, corsus has been accompanying the large-scale nature conservation project “Krautsand” with a moderation process, capturing the positions of associations and local actors and promoting exchange and communication between various interest groups and project participants on site. In this project, WWF is working as project sponsor on the Elbe island of “Krautsand” to improve or restore estuary-typical habitats. “Krautsand” is a special biotope, as the area around the funnel-shaped river mouth is one of the largest estuaries (a river mouth exposed to the tide) in Europe and the largest in Germany. There are around 150 rare animal and plant species here, including two endemic species, i.e. only found there. A large part of “Krautsand” is designated as a European bird sanctuary and, at the same time, is a place inhabited and managed by humans. Therefore, this project brings together a wide range of stakeholders and their involvement is essential for the success of the project. More information and the current status of the project can be found on the official project website from around mid-February:
