Thirsty and hungry laboratory: a new workshop by the Bioteka society at Krka National Park

After successfully carrying out the project Citizen scientists: supporting the bat population in the middle and upper course of the Krka River, organised by Bioteka, a society for the promotion of biology and related sciences, and the society Tragus with the Public Institute of Krka National Park in 2016 and 2017, this year a new project has been prepared: Thirsty and hungry laboratory. This is a workshop for children on the biodiversity of aquatic habitats and the causes of threat.

The aim of this project is to educate primary school children about the quality and quantity of water in the Republic of Croatia, with emphasis on the Krka River. Children learn about the wealth of aquatic habitats and the great biodiversity in this area through two units: Mission H2O and The Invisible World of Water.

The pupils of the Kistanje Primary School are at the area of the Krka Monastery today, sampling biological elements and determining the ecological quality of water. In April, at their school, the pupils learned about the waters in the region and the importance of water, the limitation of aquatic resources, circulation of water in nature and our daily activities that use water.

As part of this project, the Bioteka society has teamed up with experts in the ecology of terrestrial waters, to teach the pupils about the theoretical and practical sides of the biodiversity of those habitats.
