Everyone can contribute to save the life of fawns
In the eve before mowing the meadows are systematically scanned by huntsman Richard Schwald and his well trained gundog Ussa.
In order that the deer don't get used to the scarecrows, these are placed in the meadows not earlier than two days before mowing.

Game preservation is easy as a pie!
For hundreds of years mankind has been shaping landscapes by making use of it. For wild animals such changes often result in serious consequences. After grass mowing or grain harvest, e.g., food and cover are missing suddenly – the habitat has changed strongly. Game preservation measures aim on reducing negative influence on native animals. LGKS campaigns actively and intensively for game protection at it’s estate.
