News from our friend Pentti, Finnish ringer of Goldeneyes!

September 09, 2020

It is always rewarding to see that the images taken during my trip in 2019 are used to promote the research activities carried out by ornithologists in the field!

This article published in the Finnish magazine Metsästäjä gives us news about our friend Pentti Runko, a skilled goldeneye ringer in the heart of Finland. He has now reached the number of 18,000 ducks of this species ringed in 37 years of activity. And he carries out this considerable scientific work on a voluntary basis, dedicating all his annual vacations to this activity in the spring. Pentti was recently awarded by the Hako Ollikainen Foundation for his work in the service of knowledge and preservation of the Common Goldeneye. Congratulations !

The magazine Metsästäjä is the most important guidance and educational tool of the Finnish Wildlife Agency.

Our visit to the Louis Pasteur primary school in Rueil-Malmaison

January 16, 2020

On Friday, January 17, we spent the day at the Louis Pasteur primary school in Rueil-Malmaison.

 

We visited two classes of 6 to 7 years-old pupils to carry out different activities around the themes of birds and travel.

In the morning, two times of exchanges were planned to discover the birds and the particularities of certain species, discuss the trip and photography. In the afternoon, we participated with the schoolchildren in different educational workshops to put into practice the discoveries of the morning. 

 

And it was a very enriching experience for us too!

So a big thank you to the students and the teaching team for their welcome and their great motivation throughout the day!
