Every year almost 50 pairs of storks breed on the roof tops of Affenberg Salem. Often visitors are greeted with loud bill-clattering, as soon as they reach the entrance. However, this was not always the case. At the end of the 70s, only 15 pairs of storks were left in Baden-Wuerttemberg.
In 1978, the Affenberg Salem stork station was founded and white storks were reintroduced into the region. Since then, the stork population in Baden-Wuerttemberg has risen to more than 1000 breeding pairs in 2019.
