ProjectEstonian Fund for Nature (ELF) is NGO dedicated to nature conservation. Its mission is to preserve endangered species and their habitats, natural landscapes and natural associations typical of Estonia. ELF has organized yearly nature conservation holidays where volunteers, participants and group managers work together in order to improve the living conditions of a certain species (i.e. natterjack toad, black stork) or maintain semi-natural communities. You can read on http://elfond.ee/en and see photos from volunteering camps of 2019: http://www.talgud.ee/galerii/2019 The aim of this camp is restoring the habitats of endangered amphibians the natterjack toad and the northern crested newt.West-Estonia and the natterjack toadThe Matsalu National Park in West-Estonia is one of Europe s most important stopover sites for waterfowl on their flight from the Arctic to Western Europe. It is a true paradise for bird watchers. The national park comprises the shallow Matsalu Bay, nearly 50 islands and islets and the Vainameri sea surrounding them. The coastal meadows by Matsalu Bay, which are among the largest in Europe, are an important feeding place for migratory birds and a nesting site for some rare species.The natterjack toad can be easily recognized by a bright yellow stripe on its back. This amphibian used to be a common species in Estonian coastal meadows. Unfortunately, as the traditional farming and agriculture have changed, many meadows are no longer used for cattle and the open landscapes gradually disappear. The natterjack toad inhabits open meadows that have temporary ponds and no high vegetation.Haanja in South-Estonia and the crested newtHaanja is the highest part of an otherwise low country. It and 769;s locally known for some distinct cultural heritage: smoke saunas and Voru dialect. The hills of Haanja create a very diverse landscape with small size fields, hey-meadows, forests and wetlands. A perfect habitat for many cultural landscape species that have been lost in intensive farming areas.The northern crested newt 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 ponds. 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.

Hiiumaa according to the Nordic sagas emerged from the Baltic Sea as a small islet more than 10 000 years ago. The island of Hiiumaa was first mentioned in historical documents as a deserted island called Dageida in 1228. The first inhabitants settled down at the end of the 13th century. Nowadays Hiiumaa is the second biggest island of Estonia with the area of 965 sq. km and the population around 10 000. It has many historical and nature sights, and there are kind people known for their hospitality and good sense of humor. The island is referred as a remote area of Europe, so EstYES feels particularly proud developing international voluntary projects for 20 years there. Also, for years EstYES has been cooperating with farms all over Estonia for solidarity, respect and practical support to local people who work in agricultural sector keeping traditional life style and developing new eco-farming despite of all difficulties. Lepaniidi Farm on Hiiumaa Island is one of such projects. This is an organic farm promoting sustainable lifestyle, and camp is proposed for volunteers who appreciate and share its values, want to learn more about it and to help hard working people.

ProjectEstonian Fund for Nature (ELF) is NGO dedicated to nature conservation. Its mission is to preserve endangered species and their habitats, natural landscapes and natural associations typical of Estonia. ELF has organized yearly nature conservation holidays where volunteers, participants and group managers work together in order to improve the living conditions of a certain species (i.e. natterjack toad, black stork) or maintain semi-natural communities. You can read on http://elfond.ee/en and see photos from volunteering camps of 2019: http://www.talgud.ee/galerii/2019 The aim of this camp is mire and coastal meadow restoration - the mire of Laukasoo (North-Estonia) and coastal meadow in Matsalu National Park (West-Estonia). Mires are freshwater reservoirs and crucial for carbon fixation. Coastal meadows in Matsalu are important habitat for the ruff (Calidris pugnax).North-Estonia and mire restorationLahemaa National Park is located on the northern coast of Estonia and it is considered an important forest conservation area in Europe. The national park comprises scenic bogs, picturesque shorelines and large boulders that have been here since the end of the last ice age. You can also find a number of old majestic mansions here, such as Palmse, Sagadi and Vihula.The Laukasoo mire is located in Lahemaa National Park. The worksite is not accessible by car, which is why we will have to walk 1-2 km to the site, whilst carrying the work equipment (shovels and buckets). We will be digging peat and using the blocks to create a dam on a drainage ditch. Closing of the drainage network is necessary for restoring the water regime of the mire. The work is physically demanding, but doable for people with average physique and stamina.Matsalu in West-Estonia and the ruffThe Matsalu National Park in West-Estonia is one of Europe s most important stopover sites for waterfowl on their flight from the Arctic to Western Europe. It is a true paradise for bird watchers. The national park comprises the shallow Matsalu Bay, nearly 50 islands and islets and the Vainameri sea surrounding them. The coastal meadows by Matsalu Bay, which are among the largest in Europe, are an important feeding place for migratory birds and a nesting site for some rare species.Ruff is a medium sized wader that breeds in marshes and wet meadows. It is a protected species in Estonia whose numbers are influenced by drainage and disappearing coastal meadows. What makes the ruff so interesting is the fact that it has significant sexual dimorphism. The male is much larger than the female and has a distinct breeding plumage with an impressive tuft on the head. Our work in the camp will be clearing a habitat of the ruffs from brushwood.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Taevaskoja Youth Camp is adventurous hiking camp that has been active for 24 years. The aim of Taevaskoja camp is to support children s development through non-formal education. During the youth camp kids participate in different workshops about health, safety, culture and enjoy climbing and hiking activities. Taevaskoja is located in South-Estonia, about 230 km from Tallinn. The camp site is very close to the one of the most popular natural touristic place - Suur Taevaskoda (The Large Heaven s Hall), surrounded by beautiful forest and close to the one of the longest rivers in Estonia. Such location brings children closer to unspoiled nature and gives them an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with Estonian national heritage richly presented in the area. The camp aims also to develop children s knowledges about different cultures and support the growth of tolerance. To do that Taevaskoja Youth Camp invites international volunteers to join the camp as animators. Children come to Taevaskoja camp from all over Estonia. Most of them have basic knowledge of English and are very happy to have a chance to practice it. More information on www.taevaskoja.ee/taevaskoja-noortelaager/ Camp has several periods with different age groups of kids.
