ANNOUNCEMENT FOR SUMMER CAMP LIFE URCA PROEMYS
The Sečovlje Salina Nature Park (SOLINE Production of Salt d.o.o.) invites "young researchers" to a summer research camp, which will be held from July 3rd to July 7th, 2023 (during summer vacation) for children aged 10 to 12 years. The number of children at the camp is limited to 20. The camp will run from Monday afternoon to Friday morning at the CŠOD Burja home in Seča, where children will have accommodation, daily meals, and free time activities provided.
During the camp, we will be researching the European pond turtle, Emys orbicularis, in the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park. Children will be transported to the field by bicycle, and one evening they will sleep in tents that they will set up themselves. After dinner, they will have informative lectures on protected areas, the European pond turtle, and invasive turtle species that threaten it. They will also participate in creative workshops in the afternoon. Children will be divided into four groups. Work will be carried out in the field at workstations, where children will participate in determining the sex, age, measurements, weight, and photographing of turtles, as well as recording data. To ensure a unique atmosphere and activities at the camp, the CŠOD instructors and the KPSS professional staff will take care of everything.
