blooms. He is buzzing. The gardens and balconies offer the splendor of colorful flowers.
And a garden can be more than just a collection of beautiful plants. It also provides a habitat for a variety of exciting animals. Be it a bee, moth, hedgehog or robin: the animal population in our gardens is active at any time of the year.
BILD goes on a park safari with biologist Hannes Petrischak
The spider on the wall of the house, the sparrow on the grass, the butterfly in the weed bed, the wild bee on the self-made nesting – even seemingly ordinary animals often display remarkable behavior. And we can be there and live.

Can I go on an animal safari in my backyard? How wild is Germany?
Hanis Petrchak: “A park safari is always possible. You just have to look closely. Our parks are very different. Unfortunately, they are often very hostile to life: short meadows, front yards full of gray pebbles, exotic trees and shrubs that are often worthless to the local fauna. But In general, gardens are much richer in structure and species than farmland, which is often monotonous and over-fertilized.”
