In 2002 the association Förderverein Waldrappteam was founded to run and support scientific projects for the conservation and reintroduction of the Northern Bald Ibis (Geronticus eremita). Together with numerous international partners it pursues the reintroduction of a migrating Northern Bald Ibis population in Europe and supports various research projects.

Since 2022 the Förderverein Waldrappteam is a partner in the project “LIFE Northern Bald Ibis” (LIFE20 NAT/AT/000049 – LIFE NBI) for the conservation of the Northern Bald Ibis in Europe. Until 2028 the population of the European alpine region should become self-sustaining and survive largely without human intervention. For further information visit the project website www.waldrapp.eu

Since its foundation, Förderverein Waldrappteam has been working closely with Dr. Johannes Fritz and his Waldrappteam Conservation & Research. Thus, the project management of the LIFE projects as well as the reintroduction of young birds in the context of human-led migrations were and are implemented by the Waldrappteam.
