HeidelbergCement

HeidelbergCement is one of the world’s largest integrated manufacturers of building materials and solutions. Through the partnership with BirdLife International and its national partner organisations, HeidelbergCement aims to maximise the role its sites can play to support

biodiversity, through specific management actions during the active phase of the quarry, and habitat creation during the reclamation process.

Heidelbercement has been supporting the Spring Alive programme in Georgia, which aims to inspire and educate children across Africa and Eurasia about the wonders of nature and bird migration. SpringAlive is a simple, international project. It’s core activity is creating real-time, interactive observation map.  With SpringAlive, SABUKO supports teachers, educators and children with education materials, ideas and contests.

In 2020 SABUKO carried out a two-day spring camp on one of the HeidelbergCement quarries with the company’s support. School children visited active and inactive quarries, learnt the differences among them, observed biodiversity  and discussed the restoration process. They experimented with soil, learnt how to differentiate different types of soil. The camp program ended with the excursion in Eagle Valley and observing vultures.
