aga3Another task within the white stork protection project was successfully completed. It was a series of 5 training sessions during which we discussed basic issues in the field of biology and conservation of this species, as well as helping young and injured birds. The subjects of the training sessions were designed so that participants, including veterinarians, firefighters, employees of local government administration, power plant, Regional Directorate of Environmental Protection, national and landscape parks and other bodies dealing with nature protection, have basic knowledge in the field of "first aid" for birds. Such first aid is simply a skilful and attentive examination of the bird, an assessment of its chances for recovery, proper injury protection and preparation for transport in order to ensure a safe journey to the rehabilitation centre where it will be treated.
As part of the training we presented the following issues:
- Assumptions, goals, scope and implementation of the LIFE project "Protection of the white stork in the river valleys of eastern Poland".
- Biology and ecology of white stork.
- First aid to sick and injured birds and nestlings that have been thrown out of the nest, how to take care of such a bird, who to inform, how to organize help - this presentation was conducted by Dr. Agnieszka Czujkowska, Head of Wild Animals Rehabilitation Department from the Warsaw City ZOO.
Presentations given during the workshops will soon be published on the project website. 
The workshop was attended by 125 people. In the pictures, a large group of young people are students of the Veterinary Technical School in Łomża, who took part in a meeting in Osowiec in the headquarters of Biebrza National Park. Apart from Osowiec, the training sessions were held in Wyszków, Białystok, Siemiatycze and Ostrołęka in November and December. In the course of the implementation of the task, the idea was developed to make an instructional film for people who want to learn how to provide first aid to birds, and the project will be implemented by 2020, so we have a lot of time to create it. 
We thank all participants for coming!
