Recreation, education and wellbeing: The community-led Nature Park in Feldkirch, Austria

Costs and savings

The cost of running the Nature Park is about €220,000 per year. This includes the costs of food and care for the animals, maintenance, staff salaries and equipment. The costs are met through the membership fees of about 700 Association members and through grants from the regional government  of Vorarlberg and the local authority of Feldkirch (who together meet about 50% of the costs), as well as donations and sponsorship, e.g. of particular projects or ‘godparentship’ of specific animals.
