Germany is densely populated and space is used intensively. It’s needed for many things: for urban and commercial areas, for the development of infrastructure – and for nature and animal protection.
But as mankind and nature get closer, conflicts arise: bats prevent highways being built, lizards block train projects and planned sanctuaries threaten the forestry industry. The film asks: are the demands of nature protection perhaps a little excessive?
Or is there enough space for both wild animals and transport infrastructure? Our research takes us across the country to places where nature and humans collide – from Hamburg via Lower Saxony to Baden-Württemberg and Franconia.
