Corporate partners

The Donau-Auen National Park has been fortunate to have partners from the business world who have helped support the work of the National Park for years. Some provide financial support, others participate in joint projects, while yet others even send their employees on work assignments in the great outdoors.
All of these efforts are invaluable and essential to the National Park, which is financed solely through public means.

Ströck

With its novel product "BIO-Auwaldbrot" (literally, "organic bread of the wetlands"), Ströck has created an organic bread loaf in the shape of a turtle which is especially popular among children. On the one hand, Ströck is stimulating the organic agricultural sector, and on the other supporting an important conservation project for the European Pond Turtle by making the species a "star."
In 2010, the Donau-Auen National Park Junior Ranger Camp was held for the first time. Youths from ten to 14 years living in the National Park region were treated to a free week at the Meierhof in Eckartsau, where they were chaperoned by National Park rangers. Much was learned and experienced in regard to working with nature, conservation, and the special aspects of the National Park.

DONAU Versicherung

The Donau-Auen National Park has more in common with the DONAU Versicherung than just its name. As a valued partner for many years, its presence on the Schlossinsel playground and the events and attractions for children at schlossORTH demonstrate the dedication this company has shown to the National Park.

The cooperation was recently expanded to include environmental education programmes, DONAU Versicherung supports the regional partner school project of the National Park and the development of the research booklet for primary schools.
