Every tree hole is important

Old trees are called trees of life as they are a habitat for a number of animal species ranging from insects to mammals. Unfortunately, their number is decreasing in gardens, parks, even in young forests.
We decided to make and place twelve bird houses for Common Scops-owls, endangered migratory owls that recently came back from Africa. We have also made several small bird houses for passerine birds as substitutes for natural cavities. While we were building the bird houses, we adopted a responsible attitude to life. It became important how to motivate people to join us.
Under the expert guidance of the Bird Study and Protection Society of Serbia and our friend Gašo, we decided on the exact locations where to place our bird houses: the two city parks, the garden surrounding the National Museum, gardens surrounding two kindergartens, and several spots along the banks of the Zapadna Morava River.
Public Utility Company Gradsko Zelenilo provided considerable assistance without which we would not have managed to lift the heavy bird houses to the height of over 5m.
Everyone who is willing to help owls and other birds can do so in a number of ways. We handed out leaflets and thus informed people about how valuable owls are; yet, they are  highly endangered birds.
We also visited Vuk Karadžić Primary School. As pupils and teachers from this school have relevant experience of owl conservation, we agreed on the most appropriate ways of educating people about owls.
We are grateful to the local TV station Galaksija for conveying our message to the citizens of Čačak and surrounding areas.
Our action was reported and supported on social networking sites by Bird Study and Protection Society of Serbia, Serbian Owl Conservation Centre and the Special Nature Reserve Carska bara.
„Čačanske novine“ reported on our action in the article headlined ‘Concern for Future Generations’.

Sve duplje su važne

Stara stabla nazivaju stablima života, u njima život nalazi veliki broj životinja, od insekata do sisara. U našim dvorištima, parkovima, ali i u mladim šumama, sve ih je manje.
Rešili smo da napravimo i postavimo 12 kućica za ćukove – najugroženije sove selice koje su upravo pristigle iz Afrike, i nekoliko manjih kućica za sitne ptice,  kao zamenu za prirodne duplje. Gradnjom kućica stekli smo drugačiji odnos prema životu. Postalo nam je bitno kako da ljude zainteresujemo da nam se pridruže.
Uz stručnu pomoć Društva za zaštitu i proučavanje ptica Srbije i našeg prijatelja Gaša, odredili smo lokacije: dva gradska parka, dvorište Narodnog muzeja, dvorišta dva obdaništa, i nekoliko mesta duž obale Zapadne Morave.
Veliku pomoć smo dobili od JKP Gradsko zelenilo, bez čijeg umeća i tehničke podrške ne bismo uspeli da podignemo teške kućice na visinu preko 5m.
Ko želi da pomogne sovama i drugim pticama, može to učiniti na mnogo načina. Mi smo građanima delili flajere o tome koliko su sove korisne i u isto vreme ugrožene ptice. Posetili smo  i Osnovnu školu „Vuk Karadžić” koja već ima iskustva u zaštiti sova i dogovorili se kako da  obrazujemo ljude oko sebe.
Zahvaljujemo se lokalnoj TV Galaksija koja je i ovoga puta prenela naše poruke građanima Čačka i okoline.
Našu akciju su na društvenim mrežama podržali i objavili priloge: Društvo za zaštitu i proučavanje ptica Srbije, Centar za sove i Specijalni rezervat prirode Carska bara.
Reportažu sa akcije objavile su i Čačanske novine, pod naslovom „Briga za buduće generacije“.
