Bird paradise — Heligoland Island
The highlight of this school week was a trip to Heligoland Island, thanks to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, the island has a mild climate, and thanks to isolation from the mainland, it has received amazing flora and fauna, namely a unique population of wild birds.
Every year, tens of thousands of birds nest on the island. Participants had the opportunity to explore the beauty of the island’s nature and take part in an interesting excursion to learn more about birds in nature.
