In 2009, the Donau-Auen National Park started a cooperation with the Neue Mittelschule Hainburg. The focus programmes are interdisciplinary, partly at school and mostly in the wetland forest and on the Danube.
The pupils were able to participate in activities to optimise habitats or help individual animal species to reestablish themselves. In the first coordinated winter count of the white-tailed eagle along the entire Danube, the school participated in the accompanying event in Hainburg.
Since 2014, the project has been continued with the support of the Sparkasse Hainburg Privatstiftung. The supervision of an upper school class as part of the elective subject is part of the cooperation.
