Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Friends of Senckenberg,

The 200th anniversary of the Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung is under way and we are happy to be able to present to you our numerous events, exhibitions, parties and activities. We would like to celebrate this year together with you and acquaint you with the diverse research projects in our museums. In doing so, we hope to bring our work closer to you and to further increase your enthusiasm about Senckenberg.

There is no better birthday present for Senckenberg than to gain a large number of new followers, friends and supporters. Find out about the various ways to participate in our institution – be it as a member or a “Senckenberg friend,” a museum sponsor or a citizen scientist, a host or a financial supporter.

Get to know us even better and celebrate with us 200 years of exciting research and amazing citizen involvement in an area that today is more important than ever – for the well-being of our planet.
