Description of solution
The Ammersee basin with its extensive litter meadow complexes and moorland is a wetland of international importance. Meadow-breeding bird species such as curlew, common snipe, whinchat, stonechat, bluethroat, meadow pipit etc. live here. Many migratory birds use the area as a resting place. Striking large bird species such as grey and great white egrets spend the winter here. The rare and endangered species also have to struggle with the loss of their habitat. The Ammer was originally a meandering lowland river in its lower course, with many sand and gravel banks, numerous oxbow lakes, flood channels, which, depending on water level and precipitation, were periodically carrying water. With the straightening of the Ammer river, these different types of water-types largely disappeared. Since a comprehensive renaturalization of the Ammer river in the area of the Ammerseebecken is not to be expected in the near future, the Schutzgemeinschaft Ammersee is committed to create artificial Saigen, to widen ditches, to create new small water bodies and to dam up ditches in order to eliminate the worst deficits and to replace lost habitats. The measure is part of the project Alpenfluss Landschaften.
