The Senckenberg Society for Natural Research was started through the initiative of Johann Christian Senckenberg, and was founded more than 200 years ago by engaged citizens. Since then, our society has made a comprehensive contribution to scientific research, education, and communication.
We investigate the role of biodiversity during the involvement of humans within the Earth system from the past to the present. We predict scenarios in the future on a scientific basis. The three Senckenberg-programs “Infrastructure”, “Science and Research” and “Science and Society” build a bridge that sensitizes and promotes the sustainable use of nature and the resource biodiversity. With our work we make an important, internationally visible contribution to the understanding, preservation, and sustainability in the use of nature.
There are many ways you can support us!
All of what we have achieved is only possible because committed citizens have been promoting and supporting the Senckenberg Society since it was founded. This support enables us to design exciting exhibitions and museum educational programs, to present particularly unique exhibits, and to conduct future-oriented research. Help support our society for the next 200 years and accompany us on our journey.
