Environmental protection and garden design was the topic of our last colloquium at Möller Medical.
Our „colloquia“ are a series of talks about all sorts of things, not necessarily related to immediate business matters. They are roughly taking place once every 6 weeks. For all participant except the speaker, the talk is taking place in their free time.
Fabian Flügel explained the importance and motivation for nature protection. Because our landscape has changed significantly, many species of animals, especially birds, shift their habitat from forests or agricultural fields towards gardens. A cause for the ongoing loss of diversity of species is the rapidly decreasing population of insects. Studies have shown that in the recent 25 years, we have lost about 75% of the amount of insects.
Almost any participant of the colloquium can help to support species protection and improve population density. It is really simple. In terms of gardening, sometimes doing nothing is the best you can do. There are many options to make the garden more species friendly, e.g. creating a pile of dead wood or leaves, sowing a wildflower meadow, hanging nesting boxes or bird feeding. The result is a nicer garden and the chance to watch many different species of birds feed, breed, bath and sing.
As always, the talk was well attended and great fun!
