In the vicinity of the new biology center, away from every day study life, we are specifically on the trail of endangered species such as the field hamster and Salvia Austriaca. We visit the changing habitats in St. Marx and roll up the conflict fields of urban development and habitat protection. The walk will take place in all weathers, please bring rainwear.
