LAND OF A THOUSAND STORKS

The film will be talking about the white stork habitat in Warmia region. It is located in north-eastern Poland, near the border with Russia. A characteristic feature of this area is the agricultural landscape and extensive agriculture. Fields and meadows interspersed with wetlands form a distinctive and extremely valuable mosaic of ecosystems. There are a lot of endangered species here that in Western Europe, due to the intensification of agriculture, are dying at an alarming rate.

Poland is the largest stronghold of white storks in the world, and the highest density of pairs of this species is present in Warmia region.

Żywkowo village situated in the northern part of Warmia region is an exceptional place. There are 40 people and 80 storks living here. At the time when there are young in the nests the number of storks is four times greater than the number of rural residents.

The film will be completed by the end of 2013.
