Preventing plastic waste in our seas and creating new living space. The Audi Environmental Foundation is committed to this together with CLEAR RIVERS.
Measuring an orchard meadows with drones - Audi Environmental Foundation supports innovative project using citizen science, big data and pattern recognition to preserve biodiversity.
In the URBANFILTER project, the Audi Environmental Foundation and the TU of Berlin are developing filters for road gullies. Thus environmentally harmful particles such as tire wear particles do not end up in waterways.
In Germany the curlew is one of the species threatened with extinction. Therefore years ago the “Landesbund für Vogelschutz” (LBV) initiated a project to protect the curlew population. The Audi Environmental Foundation is helping to finance a new telemetry system with stationary receivers that are being tested in the field to locate curlew families.
