MYRIAD.WHERE WE CONNECT.
director: Christian Zipfel, Michael Grotenhoff
original title: MYRIAD.WHERE WE CONNECT.
running time: 31 min.
synopsisOne of the central problems of the reintroduction is the animals’ wanderlust. Since the flight path to suitable wintering grounds is not instinctive but learned from older, more experienced animals, young birds raised by humans are not familiar with it. Although they fly from their dwelling places in August, they do not do so together or in the same direction. As part of a resettlement project at Vienna’s Schönbrunn Zoo, the young birds are cared for around the clock by human foster parents, with whom they build up the bond needed to learn the long journey across the Alps.
