The ecology of our rivers is currently in a difficult state. Tons of domestic waste and hazardous industrial waste enter water bodies every day. They settle to the bottom, accumulate near the banks, negatively affect river flora and fauna, and cause irreparable damage to people’s health.
In order to draw children’s attention to the problems of water quality, the need to protect water resources, and their rational use, today, on the third Saturday of the mini eco-camp, they talked about rivers and their inhabitants – fish and insects that live near water bodies.
To start with, Nataliya Stetso, the leading expert of IRCEF, conducted an interesting quest on the territory of the church, during which children solved riddles with the names of fish, then painted coloring pages by numbers.
After active games with water and a small snack, they went for a walk to the Borzhava River, where they observed fish and dragonflies, as well as collected stones for creative activities. After playing by the river, everyone got to work together, examined the different shapes of stones, and painted them using their imagination.
The event was held as part of the cooperation of 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).
