LIFE+ during the “Biologists’s Night”
On 10 January 2020 we participated in the Biologistss Night organized by the Institute of Biology of Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce. The motto of this year’s edition was 'Global Climate Change'.
As every year, there was no shortage of attractions. Under the supervision of scientists one could perform experiments, make microscopic observations, ask questions or take part in discussions during lectures, as well as see “living mowers” or invasive species such as: red-eared slider or dwarf catfish.
The Biologists' Night was also attended by employees of the Świętokrzyskie and Nadnidziańskie Landscape Parks Complex, who prepared workshops for children, teenagers and adults on species subject to both legal protection and threatening our native fauna and flora. The event was accompanied by quizzes, puzzles and a presentation of invasive species, including the red-eared slider, the orconectes limosus and the dwarf catfish.
Nature enthusiasts had the opportunity to admire sheep from the breeding farm run in Ponidzie as part of the Life+ project entitled: “Protection of valuable natural habitats in Ponidzie” implemented by ZŚiNPK, completed in December 2018. During the Biologists’ Night, a new LIFE17 NAT/PL/000018 project entitled “Renovation of the inland Nida Delta” was also presented.
Natur-Vit, company in cooperation with an employee of our organizational unit, Dr Wojciech Szymański, presented the beneficial effects of herbs and fruits. As part of the Biologists’ Night also an “Eye to eye with a predatory bird” meeting with falconers and their charges from the “Rabiec” Horse Falconers Group took place. Thank you for visiting! See you next year!
