The project “And let Lokva live” is in full swing.
The educational project And Long Live Lokva, which aims to preserve the island wetland Lokve in Jezera and inform the public about its importance, is in full swing. Three more interesting ecological educational workshops were held where the participants revived the history of Lokva, visited the church of St. Constance on the hill Kružak, discovered the many importance of Lokva, continuously photographed it, and created many interesting albums.
In addition, participants were introduced to the Ramsar Convention, a list of wetlands of international importance aimed at protecting and conserving wetland habitats. They developed the skills of civic activism, and together they wrote an official e-mail and the Puddle Nomination for the Ramsar Convention. We are now looking forward to a return email.
They made hotels for insects and birdhouses from recycled materials, which improved the biodiversity of Lokva. In the meantime, the participants also tried their hand at the role of screenwriter, actor, master tone, and cameraman. They shot a lot of interesting materials that will soon shine, edited in an informative film that will show the general public what was being done and what charms are hiding in Lokva. Until then, see how the article about the project and the participants were made by HRT reporters.
