We have decided to do this year’s monitoring of project results on bicycles! We had good fortune in the form of a beautiful indian summer and the newly restored pastures were still beautifully green. In contrast to the surrounding “naked” fields, pastures in this country seemed even more precious.
Wetlands were once such a part of life in the local country that the locals had more than 20 different terms for “wetland”. Before the drainage of Rye Island, every centimeter of altitude was of great importance in the region, and these morphological differences were reflected in various names: gyűr, sziget, lapos.
Also during this summer, we continued to shoot the upcoming documentary about Ostrovné Lúky. In this document, we deal with the topic of nature conservation and restoration in an intensively farmed country, as well as the efforts and pitfalls of nature-friendly farming.
The impact of climate change in southern Slovakia is already very noticeable today. Increased temperature and lack of rainfall affect not only farmers but also the surrounding nature.
We prepared timetables for school children and water tatoos that introduce the life and ecology of target bird species of LIFE Ostrovné Lúky project. We distributed the timetables around elementary schools in the area of the SPA.
