Now that the badgers are settling down to winter sleep, it is a good time to talk a little about them and read poems. The children wrote poems and some of these also featured in the  Ökoskoop programme and the  TV3 Seven o’clock news. The links are here for all who are interested. – in the Ökoskoop the talk about the badger poems is in the second part of the programme, in the TV3 two-minute cut we see how pupils from the Jõhvi Elementary School, Ridala Elementary School and  Võru Kreutzwald’s School inspect the Soomaa badger sett.

Is this where he lives? The "main entrance” to the sett through the long since abandoned farmstead’s root cellar. The burrow is inspected by  Robert Tomiste from the Rahumäe Põhikool 6th form.

The children visiting the large badger sett at Soomaa with 18 burrow entrances. On the sett hillock the female badger that hunter Tõnis Korts found on the road sits stuffed-up, delighting us with her vigorous beauty; under her feet other badgers, the masters of the sett, rest in the burrows.
