International VEGAN camp in Haanja Nature Park: the great crested newt

21. juuli - 24. juuli 2022

This camp will be carried out in English and the participants will be from various countries. Only VEGAN food will be provided. The great crested newt (Triturus cristatus) is a rare dark lizard-like threatened amphibian species in Estonia, occurring mainly in the southern part of the country. One of the main reasons for the decrease in the crested newt’s numbers is the lack of small water bodies suitable for breeding. With the help of volunteers, we can clear the ponds from brushwood and vegetation, which helps to ensure the survival and increase of existing populations.

Haanja is the highest hilly part of an other wise low country. It's locally known for some distinct cultural heritage: smoke saunas and Võru dialect. Haanja hills create a highly diverse landscape with small size fields, hay-meadows, forests, and wetlands. A perfect habitat of many cultural landscape species that have been lost in intensive farming areas.

It is possible to elongate Your stay and participate in Matsalu (July 18-21) and Haanja II (July 24-27)  camps as well.

This nature volunteering camp is funded by Environmental Investment Centre.
