The camera was fixed as a part of the project “Save the Oriental Stork Together” by the specialists of partner NGO AmurSEU and the Federal Generating Company with the support of WWF Russia and HSBC Bank in one of the stork’s nests near Tambovka village, Amurskaya Province. It is mounted on the electric power pole 20 meters above the ground. This nest is five years old.
Right now storks are reconstructing their nest and soon they will start laying eggs. It is possible to watch over the family life of Oriental storks at the information portal of the Amur-Heilong ecoregion AmurInfoCenter.
The camera is streaming around the clock and powered by solar battery. The first observations showed that storks are not disturbed by the camera and are busy with their daily routine.
