Save half a square meter of unspoiled nature with every quartet game


Nature can only remain beautiful when we grant it sufficient space. That's why for every sold quartet game we make a little donation to the regional federation of bird protection in Bavaria (Landesverband für Vogelschutz in Bayern e.V., LBV) to protect half a square meter of unspoiled nature. The LBV does not only protect the biosphere. It also runs an eagle hut in Bad Hindelang, one of the best spots to be informed about and to observe golden eagles, which is only one of there many environmental projects.
