The “Restoration and Management of Oroklini Lake Special Protection Area” LIFE project on Thursday announced the release of a 15-minute documentary regarding bird activity in the lake.
The documentary is available for free viewing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrMUrTwqY4A.
According to a press release by the project’s press office, the documentary “is a glimpse of the bird diversity of the lake, its rare vegetation as well as providing an overview of actions to protect the wetland under the LIFE Oroklini project.
The filming lasted about a year in order to capture the changeable habitats of the lake throughout the seasons and various unique moments from life on the lake. Migratory birds, Spur-winged Lapwings grooming their chicks and Black-winged Stilts defending their nests, are only some of the unique wildlife images captured”.
The documentary was produced by the Environment Department within the framework of the project “Restoration and Management of Oroklini Lake Special Protection Area, in Larnaca” with the contribution of the LIFE financial instrument of the European Union.
The makers of the documentary urged people to watch and share the documentary, “to raise awareness raising purposes so we can spread the message of the importance of this wetland and the need to protect it as well and other threatened wetlands”.
