Sphenisco Mourns the Loss of Gabriele

Landau March 27, 2023. 

Sphenisco is in shock and mourns the loss of its Chairwoman, Gabriele Knauf. On March 21, she died suddenly and unexpectedly in Landau. Without Gabriele, Sphenisco would not exist.  In 2008, together with her husband, she initiated the Association for the Protection of the Humboldt Penguin and its Habitat. Since then, she has been  chairwoman of the association without interruption. With commitment, creativity, perseverance, political savvy and dignity, she shaped the work and contributed significantly to leading the association to where it is today.
