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.

It spreads quickly and competes with the local flora for habitats, forcing the latter to disappear. Luckily, the Himalayan balsam can be easily removed by plucking and this method has been proved effective over the last two years. The worksite is next to a lake: bring your swimwearELF s volunteers have plucked up the Himalayan balsam in Karula since 2017 and in Otepaa since 2021.

Estonian 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. natter jack toad, black stork) or maintain semi-natural communities.

Therefore, the spadefoot prefers habitats where the soil is grainy, for example, vegetable gardens and sandy areas. The toad emerges at night to feast on invertebrates such as spiders, ants, and beetles. Its tadpoles are the biggest in Estonia and can grow up to 13 cm longThe number of spadefoot toads in Estonia has decreased rapidly during the last 10 years. The main reason behind this is the loss of habitats as modern agriculture with large fields and pastures supersede the mosaic landscape needed by these amphibians. The volunteers can help out by restoring habitats, mainly cutting brushwood and removing vegetation to increase the area of open sand.See pictures of previous camps: https://www.talgud.ee/talgud/tehtavad-tood/mudakonn
