Tero Mustonen chairs the Selkie village committee and, according to him, the Linnunsuo wetland is a good example of well-functioning co-management. There is room for bird watchers and, after the autumn migration of waders, also for hunters.

It doesn’t take immense resources to restore wetlands into natural environments that are suitable for birds.

Even small things matter when safeguarding biodiversity and mitigating climate change.
