In the past ANB has successfully carried out wildlife conservation- and research projects, while in the mean time also providing scientific support to various wildlife related activities for example exhibitions and tv documentaries. We have vast experience in the conceptualisation, planning and the performance of surveys and expeditions in both Europe and Asia.
So far we have dealt with the following species: raccoon dog, red fox, American mink, raccoon, European wild boar, polar fox, wild camel, Mongolian gazelle, saiga antelope and wild sheep.

// Ecology of red foxes and raccoon dogs in north-east Germany - Competition or coexistence? University Rostock
// Space use pattern, dispersal and social organisation of the raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides), an invasive, alien canid in Central Europe , Technical University Dresden
// Conservation of nature and biodiversity starts at your doorstep, but you need to know what's out there before you can protect it. The ANB regularly holds summer schools for children from Germany and Poland. Here the children can experience nature and learn how nature conservation works.
