Synevyr is the largest lake of natural origin in the Ukrainian Carpathians. Everyone who finds themselves on the territory of Transcarpathia striving to get here. It is no coincidence that this reservoir is called the highlight of our region, the pearl of the Carpathians. Synevyr belongs to the list of wetlands of international importance, mainly as a surrounding for birds.
The unique mountain reservoir and avifauna of the “Synevyr” National Nature Park were discussed during an ecological and educational excursion with children of IDP from Eastern Ukraine. Synevyr Lake and its surroundings are the habitats of numerous species of plants and animals, including many rare ones. This area is a special center of biodiversity, which is closely guarded by the staff of the Synevyr National Nature Park.
Near the mountain reservoir, you can from time to time observe rare birds that are included in the Red Book of Ukraine, namely: the eagle-owl, lesser spotted eagle and black stork. In due course, scientists even recorded the flight of a golden eagle here. Migratory waterfowl stop to rest at Synevyr Lake during the migration period. Only they are allowed to catch fish here in unlimited quantities. There is a lot of alpine bullhead, lake trout, and common minnow in the reservoir. The last species is especially numerous here. Whole shoals of these small fish keep close to the banks. It was appealing to observe this eye-catcher of nature, as well as the timid little birds that were hiding in the thick of the forest. It isn’t so easy to watch birds under such circumstances, but enjoying their singing is an affordable thing that everyone took full advantage of. How do the birds sing on Synevir? Visitors of our website have the opportunity to listen to their concert today. Open the video and enjoy!
The event was held within the framework of cooperation between the Institute of Ecological and Religious Studies – IERS (headed by Alexander Bokotey) and the German Nature Conservation Union (NABU Bundesverband NABU International ), project coordinator Ivan Tymofeiev, Nataliya Kulya (IERS).
