These are our main areas of activity as a foundation
SDG 14: Life below Water
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development 18. The increasingly adverse impacts of climate change (including ocean acidification), overfishing and marine pollution are jeopardizing recent gains in protecting portions of the world’s oceans.
SDG 15: Life on Land
Progress in preserving and sustainably using the Earth’s terrestrial species and ecosystems is uneven. The pace of forest loss has slowed and improvements continue to be made in managing forests sustainably and protecting areas important for biodiversity. However, trafficking of wildlife remain serious concerns.

It provides a venue for senior decision-makers as well as thought-leaders and personalities from around the world to address key issues such as fair globalization, climate change, and corporate responsibility.

Gut Aiderbichl ́s Sanctuary for Traumatized Chimpanzees and other Primates
During the 1970s and 1980s, animal research laboratories relied heavily on chimpanzees. After the AIDS epidemic, there was an upsurge in demand for chimps. Monkey catchers swarmed around the African rainforest to trap baby chimps for Research. Adult chimps are difficult to catch: they are highly intelligent, and also seven times stronger than humans. The catchers wasted no time. They used brutal methods to trap the young chimps. The mother–child relationship is as intense for chimps as for humans. Infants cling to their mother’s belly for three years, and ride piggyback for four more years. Shooting their mothers was the only way to catch the infants. Today Gut Aiderbichl offers on a 2,500 m2 big territory two houses, ‘House A’ and ‘House B’ as sanctuary. House A consists of seven enclosures and should become home for the less ill-treated animals. House B consists of four enclosures and will be home for the most traumatized Chimps. https://www.gut-aiderbichl.com/
