PROJEKT: Conservation of European Ground Squirrel

There is always something going on at the ground squirrel locality in the Tisovský Kras. We just recently finished cleaning before the pasture will start and we are still raking the cleared piles of bushes. We strengthened the squirrel colony with individuals from Murán. The ones you see there with some kind of pattern on their back are the new settlers. We shortened their hair with scissors, the lower part of which is black. In this way, they will have patterns by which we can recognize them and follow their fate. And the most important thing – whether they mate with local residents.

Many people help us with activities for the protection of ground squirrels at the Tisovský kras. Lately, students from the first year of Evangelical high school in Tisovec on Earth Day.

In short – spring things going on.
