Mourning for Georg Grabherr

Co-founder of scientific nature conservation in Europe passed away

We have received a very sad message ...

With Georg Grabherr we lose a co-founder of scientific nature conservation in Europe. Georg was a teacher, role model and friend to many, who had a significant influence on the professional approach to knowledge-based nature conservation.

His maxim of using scientific methods to bring an emotional discussion in nature conservation to a technical level, thus making solutions possible, has shaped our job profile.

It was with great regret that we followed his last years, which were marked by his serious illness. But with great joy and gratitude we remember the times we spent together at the morning coffee in the department, the excursions and in the forest. Our deepest condolences to Traudl and Helmut!
