We should all care about the condition of our environment. We share the same global ecosystem so we are all responsible for it.
So let’s Be4Birds!
We don’t need you to make environment protection your profession but, of course, we wouldn’t mind if you wanted to. However, we encourage you to take care of nature on a regular basis, be it at home or when getting to work. It’s not that difficult to Be4Birds!
For tips on how to live your life in a more eco-friendly way, you can visit our website www.jestemnaptak.pl
. Every week or even every day, we will provide you with some useful tips on how to improve your daily routine or even prompt you with a ‘special’ idea. Small things for us could be life-changing solutions for others. Every little helps - some of these actions-when cumulated on a long term basis-may even support the survival of the species. This is very important and there is no time to waste as it is a matter of life. Let’s start now:
- Increase your knowledge – go to www.jestemnaptak.pl or visit other related websites dealing with environment protection.
- Find out what others know about birds – ask your family or friends.
- Don’t badmouth environmental organizations - find out more about what they do instead. They work for the benefit of us all including you and your children.
- Convert your garden into a Be4Birds! Garden by making it more eco-friendly or get involved in a different Be4Birds! event or competition.
- Hang a nesting box in spring and birds feeder in winter.
- Find out which species in Poland are endangered and think about how you could help to save them.
- Learn more about biodiversity, sustainable development and Natura 2000
- Take notice of birds you see on your way to work or when you stroll in the park and make a list of species you spot.
- Support establishing new national parks and extension of existing ones; such as the Białowieża National Park.
- Use a reusable bag when shopping.
- When shopping, choose fresh and local products.
- Select fish only from sustainable sources and eat the most sustainable species such as pikeperch, carp or mackerel. Avoid buying sole or eel. Buy only fish that is certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) that guarantees that fish come from sustainable sources.
- At least once a week swap your car for a bike or use public transport instead.
- Home compost your biodegradable waste.
- Save natural resources – turn off the tap while you brush your teeth – contrary to common belief, natural resources are finite.
- Visit at least one national park
- Get involved – join Birds of Poland or any other environmental organisation and let them do the work for you.
