2020 was a really productive year for the ornithologists. They have organized and coordinated dozens of events and initiatives (some of them were sponsored by the European Union) related to wild birds and protected nature territories. Our team is immensely happy to provide financial aid to these remarkable bird enthusiasts. The Society is also actively publicizing their work. They publish their own magazine, there is an active YouTube channel, and they are frequently organizing exhibitions which you can often see on television. All this work contributes to raising awareness about saving the endangered species, taking care of wild birds and ecology in general.
Nesting-boxes for the ducks
All of our money will be spent on making and putting up nesting-boxes for wild ducks and other water birds. For the birds who live in urban areas the lack of nesting-boxes is a huge problem. For example, if the ducklings (who are not yet able to fly) are born further away from a river or pond, they sometimes have to cross non-pedestrian zones in order to reach the water. That often results in cars accidentally hitting and killing them. This is why it’s crucial to provide enough nesting places as close to the water as possible to avoid this problem. We love to walk by the river and admire our beloved ducks. Now we’ll be twice as happy knowing that their ducklings are really safe. In the future we are planning to support other important projects like this one.
