From secret life of ancient forest’s inhabitants
Water observation in the drained marsh at Dikiy Nikor, monitoring bats and ringing the spotted eagle, the installation of trail cameras and study of wolves, open lectures conducted by scientists and experts invited from Belarus and Poland — all this ecological work is possible due to co-operation between the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park, the APB BirdLife Belarus public organisation and Frankfurt Zoological Society
What ecological work is possible due to co-operation between the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park, the APB BirdLife Belarus public organisation and Frankfurt Zoological Society?
The memorandum on the maintenance of the Belovezhskaya Pushcha reservation has been extended for two further years, with most of the events being financed by Germany and the National Park.
According to Victor Fenchuk, a co-ordinator of the project in the Belovezhskaya Pushcha, many of the events are for the benefit nature and popularise the national park among young people, “Due to automatic photo cameras, installed in the Belovezhskaya Pushcha, the Wild Nature Channel is available at the APB BirdLife Belarus’ website, enabling everyone to see live video shots, captured from the secret life of the inhabitants of the ancient forest. In the near future, a website will appear, enabling us to monitor the movement of the 5 wolves with GPS-transmitters.”
