The Wilderness Reserve Near Dresden Receives International Recognition

The organization estimates that approximately 80% of the 7,000-hectare protected area is left to natural development.

Günter stated that the “Königsbrücker Heide” Wilderness Reserve is a unique environmental treasure, adding:

“In a time of global species extinction and the loss of living habitats, this value is priceless. Here, nature can be truly natural, and protected areas provide a refuge for numerous species. We can also learn from this wilderness and its natural dynamics how to save species in other places.”

“Königsbrücker Heide” is located approximately 30 kilometers north of Dresden and belongs to the Oberlausitzer Heideland region. The area is characterized by its biological diversity, resulting from a variety of dry and wet habitats.

As a result, there is a wide diversity of rare species of animals and plants in the area, including beetles, water frogs, marine lizards, and other living organisms.

The area has been classified as a nature reserve since 1992, prior to which it had been used by the military for nearly 90 years.
