SWAROVSKI OPTIK, based in Absam, Tyrol, is part of the Swarovski group of companies. Founded in 1949, the Austrian company specialises in the development and manufacturing of long-range optical instruments, such as binoculars and spotting scopes, which are of the highest precision in the premium segment of the market.
Since 2014, SWAROVSKI OPTIK UK has generously donated binoculars to WLT’s Keepers of the Wild to assist rangers with their crucial monitoring and conservation work in the field. The binoculars are from the SLC range, one of the company’s most durable products offering high-optical quality and a large field-of-view. These multi-purpose binoculars are extremely rugged, thanks to the magnesium housing, and comfortable to hold even over long periods. SWAROVSKI OPTIK donations have supported keepers with WLT local partners in Argentina, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Mexico, Paraguay and Venezuela.
In addition, SWAROVSKI OPTIK UK has donated binoculars as competition prizes at Birdfair, an annual festival held at Rutland Water each summer.
