In January 2018 a young female wolf Naya came into the international news flow.  She travelled during ten days from Germany through the Netherlands to East Belgium, crossing nearly 500 kilometres. Now Naya is again in the pan-European news – more than likely the female wolf and her offspring have fallen victim to poachers.

The wolf that was given the name Naya by the public was the first wolf that be been seen in Belgium

The beaver camera that was installed in the Kilingi-Nõmme hunting grounds in Pärnumaa at the end of May has ended transmission.  

At the lodge in Ura two beavers were active until one of the animals was hit by a suddenly breaking tree. The tree fell so quickly and unexpectedly that the animal in the water could not escape the falling trunk. After this incident we have not managed to see two beavers at the same time in camera view. One animal was busy daily in camera view a week longer; in the following week it  was observed only a few times and after that disappeared completely.

Below a video reminder of the hit:

The beaver camera that has been monitoring life on the shore of Penijõgi in the Matsalu National Park has finished its transmission.

The web camera was installed near the beaver hut in order to see the animal of the year and its doings more closely. Although the inhabitants of the nest were not very eager to appear in camera view very often viewers managed to see in action and hear a great number of different mammal and bird species in addition to the beavers here at the edge of the largest reed field along the coast of the Baltic.
