About BfN

The Federal Agency for Nature Conservation is the federal government’s scientific authority for nature conservation and landscape management. We supervise projects, implement international agreements, provide research results and data, and advise policy-makers and administrations.

BfN is one of the four government’s departmental research agencies and reports to the German Environment Ministry (BMUB). The BfN has its headquarters in Bonn, the two field offices are located in Leipzig and on the Isle of Vilm.
