Six reed nests for Saimaa ringed seals on Lake HaukivesiAuthor Jukka Mikkonen
Common reed collected last winter from Lake Tuusula was used in February 2018 to build six artificial nests on Lake Haukivesi. The nests are a continuation of trials conducted in conjunction with the Saimaa ringed seal LIFE project, which is studying how common reed nests can be used to safeguard Saimaa ringed seal nesting during winters of low snowfall.
Elomatic’s innovation team had the pleasure of building the nests alongside Metsähallitus and University of Eastern Finland experts. Under their guidance, ideas and solutions have been brainstormed to mitigate the challenges faced by Saimaa ringed seals in conditions where there is now show or ice. Elomatic’s innovation team is committed to finding solutions to these challenges.
