KfW Stiftung continues the work started by KfW Group in 2011 – supporting the Frankfurt Zoo. Our aid aims to expand and improve the zoo's educational and information programmes for all groups of visitors to the zoo, thus helping to raise awareness for issues related to nature protection and the preservation of biodiversity.
Funding is provided for five projects, which are going to be set up in a joint effort over the next years and include information systems for the penguin compound as well as an information point on kiwis. Kiwis are endemic to New Zealand's northern island. Only few kiwis can be found outside their native habitat. The information point will allow everyone a glance into the kiwi world.
