We see it as a vital part of our mission to exchange the results of our scientific work with various stakeholders in politics and society as well as with the general public. Close dialogue between scientific and non-scientific communities is a pivotal asset in working towards the vision of improving the adaptability of wildlife in the face of global change. For these reasons we maintain a close cooperation with the media and use various channels for direct communication with the public.
The Leibniz-IZW regularly publishes press releases on key findings and insights from its research and on events, awards or personalia. Journalists can register to be included in the press release distribution list.
The Leibniz-IZW engages in dialogue and shares news on current research conducted by its scientists on Twitter since 2011.
A picture is worth a thousand words, goes a well-known saying. Photographs and visualisations are of particular importance for initiating and supporting dialogue on wildlife research and conservation. Therefore, the Leibniz-IZW is an active part of the Instagram photo community since 2019.
Occasionally the Leibniz-IZW produces short video clips about its research. These clips can be accessed through the institute’s YouTube channel. Our topics, projects, people, results and insights are frequently featured in third-party film productions. An overview is provided in the tab Knowledge transfer/Multimedia.
