TeleAlarm Europe GmbH has handed over a donation of 500 euros to Naturschutzbund Deutschland (NABU) – Landesverband Sachsen e.V. (Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union of Germany). The amount was collected during a competition set up by TeleAlarm at the Altenpflege fair in Hanover. TeleAlarm committed itself to a donation 0.50 euros per participant.

Almost 700 participants took part in the raffle during the fair. TeleAlarm rounded the resulting amount up to 500 euros. In the competition, participants had to estimate how many hand-held radio transmitters the company’s employees had collected in a glass at their stand.
With the donation, which was handed over by Dr. Arnd Karden to Philipp Steuer of NABU Saxony on Thursday 27 September, the company is supporting the Kulkwitzer Lachen nature reserve on the outskirts of Leipzig. In the course of recultivation, a wetland was created in the former lignite mining area, which is now home to many endangered animal and plant species. NABU Saxony is pleased about the donation, with which the successful work can be continued.
Team leader Michael Hendricks and sales manager Jurgen van Helvoort provided support during the handover. Mr. Jörg Friedrich, Managing Director of Leesys and responsible for operational processes, including compliance with quality and environmental guidelines, was also pleased with the successful support.
„We are very pleased that TeleAlarm is supporting the work of NABU with a donation and would like to express our sincere thanks for this. Specifically, we will use the funds for the maintenance and preservation of the Kulkwitzer Lachen nature reserve. There, our robust Highland cattle, used as ‘living lawn mowers’, ensure that the valuable meadows are preserved and do not become overgrown.“
Philipp Steuer, project employee at NABU Saxony
Since 2003, NABU – LV Sachsen has been committed, among other things, to grazing the area with Scottish Highland cattle and rare-breed “Leineschaf” sheep. NABU has thus contributed ensuring that this particular sheep species is no longer threatened with extinction.
