Black stork         Ciconia nigra


The male black stork is the first to arrive at the nesting site in Karula.

Currently, Karl is migrating in Turkey, having completed a 4600 km journey since the beginning of the autumn migration. His migration will now need to be monitored with greater attention, as he will soon pass through the western part of Ukraine after crossing Romania.

The Great Swamp premieres at the Matsalu Nature Film Festival

The world premiere of the film "The Great Swamp" will take place at the Matsalu Nature Film Festival in Lihula on September 23 at 6 p.m.

Vello moved to the farthest swamp island of Emajõe-Suursoo 30 years ago. He left his previous labor life and the city to live in harmony with the mother of nature. There is still such a nature in Emajõe-Suursoo that is vanishing from the rest of the world. The vast delta allows the species to live on its own, without much human intervention, even though man has been seeking refuge and food supplements in the swamp for thousands of years. Vello makes a living from beekeeping and hunting, his life flows in the rhythm of nature.
