Deli Nature Fund
Deli Nature is a leading player in food for ornamental birds, rodents and park and farm animals. Thanks to its high quality and unique product range Deli Nature has established its name and reputation worldwide.
Our mission statement is “delicatesses from nature”. We obtain our high-quality raw materials from natural sources worldwide. So we feel it is our duty to give something back to nature too.
In 2019 the Deli Nature Fund was established, with the objective of supporting projects worldwide and so making a modest contribution to the conservation of flora and fauna on our planet. So that we will still be able to enjoy them in the future too.
The first project we supported was the project to rescue thousands of flamingo chicks from Kamfers Dam in South Africa. The persistent drought had led parent birds to abandon their nests and young, with potentially disastrous consequences. With help from various quarters, including the Deli Nature Fund, local groups succeeded in rescuing the majority of the stranded flamingo chicks. This was a great success.
In 2019 Deli Nature signed a cooperation agreement with ACTP (Association for the Conservation of Threatened Parrots) in Berlin. In collaboration with ACTP and Pairi Daiza a project has been set up for the reintroduction of the Spix’s macaw (Ara spixii) in its natural habitat, the Caatinga in Brazil. Support is also offered to the conservation of the various kinds of Caribbean amazons such as the St. Vincent amazon, the St. Lucia amazon and the imperial or Dominican amazon.
In the future we aim to expand the Deli Nature Fund further and commit to supporting different kinds of projects wherever they may be in the world, not just for threatened species of parrot. We see this as being much wider. Suggestions are always welcome and are carefully considered.
