The Institute of Avian Research (IAR) uses two locations. 

The main division can be found on the grounds of the old Fort Rüster­siel in Wilhelmshaven-Rüstersiel. Here, you will find the administration, the large ornithological library, the Ringing Centre and the old Heinrich-Gätke-Museum. The museum's collection has, however, been relocated to the Wattenmeerhaus.

The Island station, with the catching garden that has been used since 1911, can be found on the island of Helgoland.
