 Objectives of the Partnerhip    

  Our projects

  • HeidelbergCement Species Protection Programme Sand Martin

    • Promotion of the target species Sand Martin in the pit Durmersheim nature conservation area – increase of the number of breeding pairs and breeding success.

    • Test the application of a new model of artificial nesting houses.

    • The knowledge of the Sand Martins increased by excursion and educational program for employees and school kids.
  • Habitat Management throught Natural Grazing

    • Increase of the species richness associated with calcareous grasslands in the quarry and surrounding area of 75 ha.

    • Restore and maintain a diverse cultural landscape of extensive livestock grazing.

    • Support the preservation of primitive animal breeds of cattle and horses.

    • Environmental training and education in cooperation with NABU Baden-Württemberg and their local groups.
  • Invasive species free quarries: benefit for business and nature

    • Creating a voluntary “code of conduct” for IAS free quarries in Israel, which will include at least 50% of the national production.
    • Promoting the code of conduct as a business advantage, by mainstreaming the demand for clean aggregates (material that originated from an IAS free quarry) in infrastructure construction.
    • Promoting regulations that support invasive free quarries..


  • Restoring Quarry Silt Lagoons for Migrant Waders

    The goal of this project is to explore opportunities for aggregate sites to carry out experimental and observational studies on silt lagoons to develop processes for their effective restoration and subsequent use as wader habitat.
