Восстановление сельской усадьбы 19 века Артемьево

Frolovskoye, Russia Nature reserves and national parks

Друзья, уже почти три года прошло с той ночи, когда случился пожар в нашем прекрасном доме - в сельской усадьбе в д.Артемьево, расположенной в Мышкинском районе Ярославской области.
Об уникальной истории усадьбы вы можете прочесть на страничке http://artemyevo.narod.ru/
Тогда мы обратились за помощью, и множество добрых людей откликнулось!
Низкий поклон им и сердечная благодарность!
Началось восстановление. http://artemyevo.narod.ru/projects/proekt1.html
Как надо бы докрыть крышу до зимы!
Еще нужна помощь по разгребанию завалов.
Приглашаем волонтеров: помогайте, коли можете!
Можем разместить на ночлег и прокормить человек 5-8. (размещение в обогреваемых домиках-бытовках). Есть русская баня!
Если вы интересуетесь историей, архитектурой, просто любите путешествовать, для вас будет интересно посетить и нашу деревню и расположенный рядом г.Мышкин.
Не смотря на произошедшую трагедию, усадьба продолжает свое существование в качестве сельской усадьбы: сад, огород, выращиваются фрукты и овощи, в лесу есть грибы, разводятся животные: козы, овцы, лошади, куры, кролики. Приехать к нам - прекрасный способ отвлечься от городской суеты и погрузиться в жизнь сельской усадьбы 19 века!

Tree Inventory and Monitoring (Eco-Volunteer)

Brazil Nature reserves and national parks

Tree Inventory:
We study the biodiversity in different areas of the reserve to assess forest well-being. In the process we can understand the distribution of fruit tree species which is particularly important for our partners at Celine Bird Release Center. Why? Imagine you are releasing a parrot which only eats a certain fruit and it only grows between June and July. Therefore you should only release this parrot during these months to ensure it has available food which will increase the chances of a successful release. Moreover, these birds are tagged and monitored after their reintroduction to the wild to ensure they are adapting well and therefore identifying fruit trees in the area will increase the likelihood of finding the bird to monitor their progress.

The tree inventory is part of a larger role named "Eco-Volunteer". The Eco-Volunteer role contains a range of activities which are conducted in a group. The majority of these tasks are field activities so this is for volunteers who like to be outside and enjoy physical activity. Not all these projects occur at the same time as various projects are seasonal. Tasks of an eco-volunteer are not limited to the roles below but we have listed the main areas that the eco-volunteer will participate in: Gardening/Reserve Maintenance; Mushroom Inventory; Tadpole Research; Bird Inventory; Mammal Monitoring using Cameratraps; Fish Inventory; Literature Research; Communications Support; Creative/Arts & Crafts projects and much more.

Photographers/Movie Producers:

Brazil Nature reserves and national parks

The Biodiversity Observatory OBBIO - is a network of video cameras that record the fauna and flora 24 hours a day, generating films and content for use in research and education. The dream is to make wildlife monitoring accessible to everyone by placing it online allowing with anyone interest to participate in conservation efforts. Moreover, if the model works and other NGO, National Parks and Research Institutes use the same technology they can link their networks to transfer images, videos and knowledge seemlessly. Therefore OBBIO also seeks to establish partnerships with individuals, businesses and institutions wishing to conduct online monitoring of fauna and flora in other regions of the country. Our videos have been used on the Discovery Channel and are regularly published on our YouTube channel. People interested in adding content to the database or can put the content to good use in clips, documentaries or magazine publications are welcome. Anyone with editing or digital ar skills would be of great help also.

You can work closely with our biologist and photographer to join them on expeditions to capture the images or to set up the camera traps in the forest. They can provide you with important information about what species are endangered, what are the major cause that driving extinction and the current models for conservation.

Mammal Monitoring via Cameratraps: we have cameras filming 24/7 in the forest but all his data needs to be sorted. Volunteers are tasked with watching the footage, organizing the photos of mammals and identifying the species.

Fish Inventory: understand the biodiversity of species in our rivers.

Bioluminescent Mushroom Researcher

Brazil Nature reserves and national parks

The position entails active searching during both day and night, photographing mushrooms in the forest and at the research center, filming the development process, and testing various substrate compositions, temperatures and other factors that are conducive to the development of the mushrooms in the lab.

Bioluminescent mushrooms are only abundant during the summer when the humid conditions are favorable to their development. IPBio wishes to develop a protocol which allows us to grow them in the lab under controlled conditions so they are readily available all year long. This would allow: researchers to study them over longer periods; students on school trips to visualize the mushrooms during their winter trips (when they do not grow naturally) and potentially have an impact on tourism in Iporanga through initiatives such as the development of a “Museum of Bioluminescence”.
