Next stop: snack station

The squirrel has many different nicknames in Germany, such as "oak kitten," "oak hare" and "tree fox." Red squirrels are among the best known native rodents and are under species protection. The little rodents feel particularly comfortable in cities, gardens and parks. However, the supply of food in these places is rather limited for the wild animals. 

This is why our employees are helping the squirrels in their search for food. For example, our DB Long Distance eco-aware trainees have been started a project, in which they are installing food stations for the little rodents and sustainably maintaining these stations.
