Achtung Artenvielfalt!

The nationwide action week for the protection of biodiversity


From the 7th till the 13th of October 2024, the action week “Achtung Artenvielfalt!” will enter its fourth round.

Since 2021, the action week creates more public awareness for the loss of species and biodiversity. In the past year, more than 30 associations for ecological conservation and research institutes have partaken nationwide with over 70 events online and offline. Discussion rounds, special tours through museums and botanic gardens, Instagram challenges, documentary evenings, podcasts and excursions – the offered events have been received very well. (Here, you can find the throwback to “Achtung Artenvielfalt!” 2023.)

“Achtung Artenvielfalt!” is coordinated by the BMBF Research Initiative for the Conservation of Biodiversity (FEdA), the Verein Deutsche Naturwissenschaftliche Forschungssammlungen e.V. (DNFS) and the Leibniz natural history museums – the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, the Senckenberg museums in Frankfurt on the Main, Görlitz and Dresden as well as the Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change in Bonn and Hamburg.

During the late summer, the program of the action week is created here, so check in again at your leisure. Please note that, unless specified otherwise, most events will be held in German.
