There are 3 species of Galliformes in Estonian forests: the western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus), the black grouse (Tetrao tetrix), and the hazel grouse (Tetrastes bonasia). Prior to the work, an ornithologist will give an overview on how to differentiate between these species and how to recognize their feathers, feces and sound. Volunteers will spend workdays either alone or in pairs in individual areas. The task is to walk through the designated area taking notes of all the Galliformes or signs of the species. A smartphone or GPS will help you keep track of your whereabouts. A typical workday lasts for 6 hours. There will be no surveillance on days with heavy rain. The guidelines will be provided by ELF. Note that terrains may be rough, so choose your clothes and footwear accordingly.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Simple accommodation on mattresses or in beds with sleeping bags is provided. Showers and kitchen are available. One evening will be reserved for the traditional Estonian sauna. We will be cooking our own breakfasts and packing our own lunches throughout the camp. The Estonian group leader will compile the menu and buy the groceries. Dinner will be provided at the accommodation site.Volunteers will stay at Oonurme village on 8-14th June and near the Lake Peipus on 14-20th June.
