Journal „Eesti Loodus“ informs

In the last issue of 2016  of Eesti Loodus we bring the question of Rail Baltic to our readers.

Geographer  Arvo Järvet reminds of the start of the Rail Baltic project and discusses whether the creation of a high-speed railway in Estonia really is still meaningful. Logistics entrepreneur  Karli Lambot refers to the concern that the proposed Rail Baltic will become a monument in Europe to a thoughtless and wasteful culture.

On December 9, 2016 the web newspaper ”Avalik Eesti” – "Public Estonia" started its publication.

”Avalik Eesti” will publish articles on the development of issues in the Estonian public sphere.

In the first issue of the newsletter people write who published an open letter in the newspaper Postimees on September 30th in which they asked for an open debate in the Estonian community of the planned Rail Baltic.

The editorial of the first issue says:

We see that the  '101 letter' has achieved its objective: public interest and a desire to contribute in the deliberations has come to life, but as before there still is a lack of adequate information about the plans.

Perhaps necessary to show who is the king of this forest?

Some months ago a woodpecker made the entrance hole to the nest box larger, behaved rowdily and threw out nest materials (it is of course good that the old nest materials were removed). Sometimes it even came in daytime to check the nest box.

Despite the so to say autumny weather brown bears have already started giving birth in our forests in December, and it can last until February. Up to sixty mother bears will see an increase in their family.
