Sheep graze on Tempelhofer Feld
25 sheep have been brought to Templehof Field to act as four-legged landscape conservationists.
The animals of the Skudde breed will initially graze on the 23-hectare, permanently fenced bird sanctuary in the south-east of the field to keep the area in shape, as Grün Berlin GmbH announced on Monday, 12 August 2019. After several weeks, the sheep will move on. For this purpose, the entire grazing area of more than 120 hectares will be divided into several paddocks.
Sheep graze on Tempelhofer Feld until winter
Originally, the animals come from Britzer Garten and the Gardens of the World/Arche-Park Kienbergpark. The cloven hoofed animals are to remain on the Tempelhofer Feld until winter. After that they will return to their original homes for the time being, until grazing is to start again in spring 2020, before the skylarks' breeding season begins.
