The Eagle Club of Estonia (Kotkaklubi) is a non-governmental organisation whose members have studied, observed and protected black storks, white tailed eagles, spotted eagles, ospreys, golden eagles and many more species for decades. Currently, the Eagle Club comprises 26 members. They include specialists in ornithology and nature conservation, foresters, and enthusiasts of nature and bird protection. Their primary objective is to guarantee the survival of endangered birds.
Kotkaklubi promotes the principles of nature-friendly management of forests and agriculture. They also ring juvenile birds, place transmitters on several young and adult birds, build artificial nest platforms if needed, and take care of injured animals.
In order to increase public awareness, they installed webcams and microphones on various nests. The Eagle Club has an ever-growing fan club for these webcams, and every year new people from all over the world join the ranks of observers. Always with the aim to transmit better images and sound to all of us, the Eagle Club pays a lot of attention to the quality of those cameras.
All activities of the Eagle Club are voluntary, so they depend on the financial support of many projects and the donations of various organisations and private persons. Unfortunately, this support does not include some very necessary expenses.
Currently, the Eagle Club is looking for support to their webcams.
The regular replacement of components of the equipment needed to broadcast images is a cost that is not yet sponsored.
In order to help the Eagle Club, we – forum members Jo, Anne and Kaori – decided to start this fundraising.
We had the idea to write – and illustrate – a popular, yet factual book about the life of a black stork named Karl, a fascinating bird you can currently observe here:
We have put a lot of love, time and energy into this book. A test-reader said: “It is a well-written story full of adventure, interesting facts and lovely illustrations.”
We really hope you will enjoy it too!
Small Print: For ease of administration, our fund-raising website is being organised by a member of the support group, Josephine Coleman, who will receive any funds on behalf of the project. The accounting will be overseen by two witnesses.
