The Fawn-Savers are out in the fields again
This year teams from Germany, Belgium, France, Austria, Switzerland and Spain are helping hunters and farmers to effectively protect small game with the help of the drones of the Blaser Fawn-Rescuer wildlife protection project. While out there, they do not only save fawns from a certain death but also other wild animals such as hares, partridges or hedgehogs.
We would like to thank everyone involved who made that project possible for the third consecutive year. But most of all, we would like to say THANK YOU to all the tireless volunteers which ensure through their dedication that nature and its biodiversity are being preserved for the coming generations.
The project is part of Blaser's long-term sustainability strategy. "Taking responsibility for nature and the wildlife living in it has always been part of hunting," says Wiebke Lüke, Blaser's head of marketing, "but in the future we need to do even more together to ensure that future generations can experience biodiversity and nature as we do." So, in addition to fawn rescue, the drone can of course be used to protect other wildlife such as brown hares, partridges or hedgehogs

5 important tips for fawn rescue
- Engage with farmers in your area in a timely manner. Proper timing is especially important here.
- Assemble a team to work together to help before, during and after the fawn rescue.
- If you find a fawn, do not handle it without gloves. If possible, wear odorless gloves and carry the fawn out of the meadow bedded in grass. A basket with holes in which they can carry it far enough out of the danger area is optimal.
- Organize sufficient means of communication (walkie talkie, other radios) if no cell phone network is available.
- If you do not have your own drone available, contact one of the Blaser fawn rescue teams or contact neighboring hunters, hunting clubs or county hunting associations.
Contribute with the fawn rescue so that we continue to live in a world characterized by biodiversity.
