Help, Snake! – Popular posters for locals

Panic, fear, horror, myths … and the end is often the same, a crushed reptilian body. Why do we always get there? Simply, because of ignorance. We are not aware, that these beings are mostly harmless, occasionally only lizards without legs. Moreover, we do not know how to behave with venomous species. This series is targeting the communities of different localities and regions, in order to present and popularize these species, and to introduce a fair behavior towards these reptiles, both for the sake of their and our own safety. We hope the next encounters will be more peaceful! Continue reading

Victor, Bolomey, Márton and other Rollers with satellite transmitters

You get close on your tip-toes; you even hold your breath. You wholeheartedly hope that the Roller from the artificial hollow or the loess wall won’t hear your steps heading towards. She’s a very suspicious bird, will fly out at every little sound she considers it hostile. So approaching its nest is one of the toughest moments because you do it with a net to make sure the bird will not fly. Continue reading

Wild animals’ offspring do not need saving!

Out of sympathy and pity, many people considered necessary to save baby dears, rabbits or other wildlife offspring found in the fields, forests and clearings. But beware; these calves seem lonely and helpless though the truth is otherwise. Their parents left them in safe places for a short time! Parents will return to their offspring! For this reason there is no need for human intervention. Please do not touch, move or disturb these youngsters! They are more secure if you do not bother them!

In the bear’s way!

Concrete parapets, roads without eco-ducts or underground passages, railways, fenced fields. All of these represent obstacles for wild animals that roam hundreds of kilometres in search of food, partners, wintering places, and so on. This is the conclusion of an  ACDB report – https://goo.gl/VHPtqU, mentioning exactly the area where the following images were recorded (DN2D, between Târgu Secuiesc and Focsani): a bear with cubs trying to cross the road. The construction of motorways without special structures to allow the movement of large carnivores is a major risk factor for these species, but also for the safety of traffic participants. We want green infrastructure measures and we act through the TRANSGREEN project.
