Jurský Šúr, a Ramsar site near Bratislava, calls for volunteers

NATIONAL Nature Reserve Šúr is the largest area of its kind in Central Europe and one of the largest in the whole of Europe. The Joy and Work initiative call on volunteers to come and help out with cleaning, while also enjoying the unique site.

During their work, volunteers will visit blinds for hunters and mow the grass around them, while also picking up trash in the scrubland areas.

Monumental old elders with their roots, fallen trees and the humidity of this unique community resemble a tropical forest, the joyanworkd.weebly.com website suggests, adding that this site was also designated a Ramsar site in 1990. The local Panónsky háj Grove is an old elm-oak forest with majestic old oaks.

Besides these two main habitats there is also a fishpond with the occurrence of water-birds. Wood-peckers, Grey Herons, Black Storks and maybe also an Imperial Eagle can be met here with a bit of luck, and this location offers huge populations of fallow deer, European roe deer, moufflon, European hare and wild boar, while it is quite easy to observe and even photograph them.

Those wishing to participate can join the work group at petrol station Svätý Jur on June 20, 2015 at 4:00. The coordinator is Lucie Meisnerová, with the participation fee of €9.90 covering breakfast and lunch. Contacts are 0903/265- 476, Facebook and www.joyandwork.weebly.com.  

The goals of the project are international understanding, education, environmental protection and international and intergenerational exchange.
